Fluorite is a calcium fluoride crystal which grows in cubic patterns and occurs in hydrothermal veins alongside other crystals such as Quartz, Barite, and Calcite. It varies in color from green, blue, purple, and white to pink. Fluorite in its natural state is clear; the colors are produced by impurities. It will often appear in a wide range of colors in a single specimen – Rainbow Fluorite is especially gorgeous. It is a very soft stone and will break, cleaving between colored layers when dropped.
The word Fluorite comes from the Latin word “fluere” meaning flow. Fluorescence has derived its name from Fluorite – glowing colors under ultraviolet light. Synthetically grown Fluorite is used in creating lenses for microscopes, telescopes, and even in some DSLR cameras. The largest piece of Fluorite ever discovered was found in Russia and measured approximately 2.12 meters long and weighed about 16 tons.
