Fluorite is a crystal found in a huge variety of colors, from blues, greens, pinks and purples, to softer clear and yellow shades.
Different locations around the world have very distinctive Fluorite varieties, and can be found in various forms, from cubic, to octahedrons, and even large chunks.
The ancient Egyptians and Chinese carved Fluorite into decorative objects, but generally, it is too soft to be used in jewelry.
The word “fluorescent” comes from Fluorite because of the fluorescent nature of its many varieties. When it’s pure, Fluorite is actually clear and colorless, but the impurities in the crystal are what give it its wide range of colors.
