Fluorite is the mineral form of calcium fluoride and it belongs to the halide minerals. This busy stone has many uses in the metallurgical, chemical, and ceramics industries; Fluorite functions as a flux in smelting, and in the production of some glasses and enamels. In its purest form its used in the manufacture of hydrofluoric acid. It is also the defining mineral for 4 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, and fluorescence (the blue glow that can be produced under ultraviolet light) was named after the mineral Fluorite.
This small Fluorite pillar has an absolutely eye-catching purple color! The one side is a bright translucent purple that softly blends into banding of light to deep green. This piece is about 6 cm tall and is small enough to fit in many different places from windowsills to bedside tables...what a vibrantly versatile piece!
There are different associations for the different colors of Fluorite, but generally it is seen as a very protective stone, aiding in staying grounded and stable. Purple Fluorite is thought to be connected to the Third Eye and imparts common sense, and Green Fluorite is considered to be a Chakra cleanser. A great stone if you have some disorganization in your life that you would like to tackle!
