Fluorite: The Stone of Clarity
Fluorite is one of the most important stones for a beginner or experienced crystal connoisseur to keep in their healing kit. It is a calcium fluoride crystal with a hardness of four. Its growth pattern is cubic, or octahedral, and it occurs in hydrothermal veins, often in association with minerals such as quartz, calcite, and barite. Fluorite is a stone of the Wind Element and effectively helps to control the functions and fluctuations of the Heart Chakra and the Third Eye Chakra. Fluorite comes in a naturally wide variety of beautiful colors including black, blue, clear, green, magenta, rainbow, also known as multicolored, pink, purple, and yellow. Fluorite has lent its name to the property of fluorescence, the display of vivid glowing colors under ultraviolet light. Important fluorite deposits have been found in Germany, England, China, Argentina, and the United States.
Fluorite is known as the stone of mental order and clarity. It enhances focus, aids in concentration, amplifies learning abilities, and boosts memory retention. Fluorite can also help one to attain a deep state of meditation and to realize and become aware of one’s life purpose and life path. Due to these intense mentally enhancing properties, fluorite can help to “de-clutter” a boggled mind and can help an individual to make clear, conscious decisions when faced with a life transition or unexpected dilemma.
Not only does fluorite enhance one’s life with abundant and increasingly positive physical, mental, and spiritual energy, it also helps to clear and dissolve past wounds, traumas, and negative emotions. Due to its ability to detoxify the emotional and spiritual body, the carrier of fluorite will notice a calming sense or relief from anxiety, tension, depression, and anger. Fluorite also reduces instability and disorder in one’s life by removing emotional attachments, in turn, bringing balance to the aura and reducing or eliminating exposure to negative energies and harmful thoughts of oneself.
