Part of The Fossil Cartel’s Metaphysical Monday series on Facebook Live, this video addresses the many metaphysical healing properties of fluorite. It is especially useful as a protection stone, especially electromagnetic fields emitted by computers and mobile phones. Susan discusses various additional healing properties of fluorite, and displays the many varieties of fluorite available in the store, both in jewelry and as specimens.
Fluorite has the widest color range of any mineral and often exhibits several colors in the same specimen. Fluorite forms as cubes, octahedrons, massive granular, or compact. Its name is derived from the Latin fluere, meaning “to flow,” due to its use as a flux in iron smelting. The word “fluorescent” comes from fluorite crystals being the first minerals found to fluoresce. Fluorite is also used to make opalescent glass. Fluorite deposits are found in USA, China, Mexico, Canada, Spain, and UK.
