Fluorite

Etymology and history

Fluorite gets its name from the element Fluorine, which is it mined for. The word fluorite is derived from the Latin root fluo, meaning "to flow" because the mineral is used to increase the fluidity of slags used in smelting flux.

Fluorite description

The colors of fluorite are very pictorial and pleasant for the eye. The fluorite mineral can combine many shades of various colors, but mostly purple with white, or purple with green, or sometimes, green, yellow or gray. Fluorite comes in a wide range of colors and has subsequently been dubbed "the most colorful mineral in the world". The most common colors are purple, blue, green, yellow, or colorless. Fluorite is frequently fluorescent under ultraviolet light. Another characteristic of fluorite is its thermo luminescence.

Fluorite jewelry

There are many jewelers who think that it is ill-advised to use Fluorite in jewelry. This is absolutely not true. Fluorite is excellent material to make rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants, brooches and pins.

Occurrence

The Fluorite is mined in very limited quantities at Amelia Court House, Virginia; Franklin, New Jersey and the Bluebird Mine, Arizona, USA; Gilgit, Pakistan; Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec, Canada and at Nerchinsk in the Ural Mountains, Russia.
