Fluorite is the mineral form of calcium fluoride and belongs to the halide family of minerals. It comes in many colours, most commonly purple, green, blue, yellow, lavender and rainbow. It has also been known as fluorspar and has a cubic crystal structure which can clearly be seen on natural pieces (not tumbled).
Fluorite helps with mental clarity and focus. It clears the mind by helping to dissolve blocks or constricting thought patterns. It can help to organise mental information and is a great aid in a learning situation as it stimulates the absorption of information. Place a piece of fluorite on each corner of your desk when studying or in each corner of a classroom to enhance a learning situation.
Fluorite can absorb and transform negative energy, acting as a ‘psychic vacuum cleaner’. It clears the atmosphere of confusion, cluttered thoughts and negativity. Fluorite can help us to recognise when our lives may be controlled by outside influences and helps us to rapidly dissolve these connections so that we live life true to ourselves.
Fluorite is good for teeth and bones. It can help improve joint problems, such as arthritis, and can improve bad posture. It is also said to be highly beneficial to the skin, mucous membranes and respiratory tract.
