 Fluorite Gemstone Properties 


Design Possibilities

Fluorite, also called fluorspar, adds a refreshing touch wherever it appears. Whether you wear the translucent lavender or the medley of cool rainbow colored beads, the effect is the same. You'll feel relaxed and perked up at the same time as if you'd just stepped out of a cool shower. Its name comes from the Latin word "fleure" which means "to flux". I especially love using rainbow fluorite beads because their range of colors and variety of fascinating shapes blends with and complements solid color gemstones so beautifully. And like a rainbow, which I never tire of, each fluorite bead is unique and lovely.

Metaphysical/Healing Properties

(from Stones Alive) - Ever notice the effect of a beautiful rainbow? It softens something in us. For a moment, we let go of everything. We feel connected to something larger than ourselves and to everyone else standing there looking at that rainbow. It reminds us that we can always begin again. That's the wonderful sense of life fluorite gives us whenever we wear it.
