History: Fluorite goes back to ancient Egypt and China and was used as an ornamental stone and was also carved and shaped into beads and figurines. It began to be mined commercially in 1933 and became a part of the smelting process, in glass and polymers to create lenses for microscopes, telescopes and even for Canon camera lenses. The largest fluorite crystal cube was found in Russia and it was 2.12 and weighed 16 tons.
Where it's found: Found in Mexico, the United States, the United Kingdom and China.
Variations, Rarity and Value: Fluorite is transparent to translucent with a vitreous lustre. It's one of the only minerals with perfect cleavage in four directions that can create octahedrons and even dodecahedrons although these are rare. It rates a 4 on the Mohs Hardness Scale which means that it’s too soft to be made into a precious gemstone but hard enough to be made into larger beads or pendants.
How to use it: Hold Purple Fluorite while you meditate to connect with your intuition and to enhance your connection with your inner truth. Place it by your bed to enhance dreams, to receive messages in your dreams and to ward off bad dreams. Use in tandem with any spiritual practices.
