Fluorite Crystal Healing Properties:
Fluorite is a force of order in the stone kingdom, bringing focus, structure, stability and clarity. On an emotional level, it assists us to ‘think through’ our feelings when we are overwhelmed by emotional experience. Fluorite assists in balancing brain chemistry, enhancing learning and stimulates the brain.
Fluorite History and Uses:
Fluorite derives from the Latin word “fluor” or “fluere”, meaning to flow because when melted it is used as a flux in iron smelting. In the 16th century Agricola, a German scientist named it fluorspar from the German “flusse” (stream, river) and “spar” from “spærstān” (spear stone) a mineral similar to gypsum referring to its crystal projections. Flourite can be found in all the colors of the rainbow plus pink, brown, black, white and clear. Due to the presence of europium, yttrium, ytterbium, or organic matter in Fluorite it can fluoresce blue, red, purple, yellow, green or white under UV light and in 1852 when the phenomenon of fluorescence was discovered it was named after Fluorite. It is also a source of hydrogen fluoride, which is chemically converted into fluorine, fluorocarbons, and a diverse range of fluoride materials.
