Appearances & Origins
Fluorite often occurs with other common crystals, such as quartz and calcite and comes in many different formations such as; pyramids, points, eggs and clusters. It is sometimes available in clear, yellow, blue and brown shades but typically in ‘rainbow’, gentle purple and green in colour. When it is in these colours, it is often polished so that its stunning colour bands are obvious. Fluorite spans the most extensive colour range in the mineral world, from colourless to bright shades of different colours.
Fluorite gets its name from the Latin word ‘fluo’, which means a flow of water. This meaning extends into the qualities of the crystal, Fluorite pushes out mental fog and increases concentration and general flow in life. The fluorite crystal meaning comes from its fluorescent light that comes out when it is exposed to UV rays. The term Fluorite comes from the Latin word ‘flux’ meaning the flow and mixing of materials. It’s earliest uses date back to ancient Egyptians and Chinese and was used commonly as an ornamental stone.
Chakras & Placement
Fluorite’s chakra resonance changes depending on colour. If it is more green, it is heart-calming and throat opening. However, if it is more purple, it aligns with the crown chakra, opening up a gateway to an energetic connection to oneself.
Known commonly as the stone for focus and organisation it is an ideal stone for students and workers seeking balance and grounding to keep in their place of focus. Carry a piece of fluorite with you to stay calm in day-to-day life, it also helps to clear mental confusion and disorganisation and evokes general productivity.
- Fluorite is generally known to be okay with light.
- Light helps Fluorite to absorb energy after being cleansed with water.
- Extended periods of direct sunlight may cause deeply coloured Fluorite to fade. The colour change will not affect the energy your crystal omits, however, keep an eye on them.
- If you see some colour change that you prefer to avoid, place your stone in a place where there is indirect or dappled light.
