Healing Properties of Green Fluorite

Spiritual: All colors of Fluorite energize our mind and spirit, swiftly shifting us into a positive state of being, able to focus our energies appropriately.  It helps us to assess situations correctly and determine what is needed and how to use our gifts for the Greatest Good, both for ourselves and for the world at large.  Fluorite celebrates individuality, reducing the power of outside influences and encouraging us to take control of our own lives.  It encourage us to make decisions and create practical systems so that we can stay stable and grounded, while living dynamic and creative lives.  Green Fluorite helps us to “tidy up” our lives, both internally and externally, ridding us of negativity and replacing it with Love. Green Fluorite is attuned to the Heart Chakra and linked to the astrological signs of Capricorn and Pisces. It is connected to the element of Wind and vibrates to the number 2.

Emotional: Fluorite has a stabilizing effect on the emotions. It helps us to work through confusion and disorganization, by encouraging us to “think” our way through our emotions, rather than just be mindlessly lost in them. Fluorite also encourages us to stay in the present moment and to make good plans for the future so that we are able to be courageous in the face of the unknown. Fluorite is excellent for keeping relationships balanced and stable.  Green Fluorite in particular, helps us to stay heart-centered, despite any emotional chaos we may be feeling.

Mental: Fluorite is a stone that dissolves chaos and biases. It removes mental and creative blocks and helps us to let go of narrow-minded thinking and limiting behavioral patterns. Fluorite makes a wonderful tool for scholars, since its organizational energies make it easy to cross-reference existing knowledge and rapidly absorb new information. Fluorite is one of the best stones for cultivating discernment and understanding how our energies can best be used.  Green Fluorite is particularly good for releasing old habits and obsolete patterns that not longer serve us.

Physical: Green Fluorite is recommended when we are feeling uncomfortable and out-of-balance in our body and in life in general.  It encourages us to pause and assess if we are neglecting our physical needs.  For example are we too hot and slightly dehydrated, or are we tired from poor sleep or working too much, or have we been sitting by ourselves too long and need to get up and move?  Likewise, if we are a little sick, with a stomach ache or sore throat, Green Fluorite encourages us to pay attention to our body and do whatever is needed to sooth and restore it.  Green Fluorite teases us if we are being silly neglectful children, and encourages us to act like sensible adults and take good care of ourselves.  Fluorite in general is a lovely talisman for any problem associated with the teeth, nails and joints.  Green Fluorite in particular is a good talisman for improving posture and mobility as well as for stomach cramps and intestinal problems.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Mineral Family: Fluorite belongs to the Halide mineral family, a group of minerals which consists of metals combined with common halogen elements. The most famous member of the Halide family is Halite – better known as common table salt!  Fluorite is the second most well-known, and is found worldwide in a rainbow of bright colors.  Green Fluorite is one of the more common colors.

Associated Minerals: Calcite, Chalcopyrite, Pyrite and Quartz 

Formation: Fluorite is a “simple” Halide, which is created when a metal combines with Calcium and Fluorine in a water-soluble solution. It can be formed in primary, secondary, and even tertiary processes. It is most often found as a vein mineral running through Lead and Silver ores. It also occurs in pegmatite cavities, in sedimentary rocks, and around hot springs. Violet, green, and yellow are the most common colors, although colorless, blue,  pink, red, and black specimens are also found. In multi-colored Fluorites, each color stays in a distinct zone within the same crystal, following the contour of the crystal face.

Mining: Fluorite is primarily mined alongside Silver and Lead, as a part of the rock surrounding the ores, or in Granite and Marble mines.  Fluorite is used industrially to make high-octane fuel, hydrofluoric acid, and opaque glass, as well as for refining Aluminum and Lead. Fluorite is also the source for Fluorine, used to fluoridate water and to provide the nonstick quality in Teflon pans. With its vivid colors, it would be expected to be a popular gemstone, however its softness and fragility make it less desirable for use in jewelry.

History of Green Fluorite

Green Fluorite is a relatively “new” stone for the metaphysical community.  Fluorite comes in every shade of the rainbow, and has only been recognized as a distinct mineral since the eighteenth century, making it difficult to establish any ancient and medieval healing traditions. .  While it is not clearly included in ancient and medieval lapidaries, Fluorite is listed in virtually all modern lapidaries.  Some of these lapidaries simply list Fluorite as a single stone, while others include passages for each distinct color.

Fluorite under Black LightFor most of its history, Fluorite was lumped in with other stones that easily break, such as Calcite, or with stones that help ore reach its melting point more quickly. The name Fluorite comes from the Latin fluere, meaning “to flow.” This is a reference to how easily Fluorite melts when exposed to hot temperatures. Since Fluorite is often found with valuable metals, such as Silver, it is often seen in its liquid form during the smelting process used to refine metals.

In 1852, Fluorite was responsible for first demonstrating the phenomenon of fluorescence  – a bright glow that some objects emit when exposed to ultraviolet light (black light). It was at this point that Fluorite was recognized as a distinct mineral, and it immediately became a favorite stone for natural history museums and collectors of all sorts.  Green Fluorite is the most common color found in most gemstone collections.

Sourcing Relationship

I first met the owner of the Hong Kong tumbling company at the 2014 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show.  A language barrier coupled with the quick pace of the gem show, makes it difficult to discuss sensitive or complicated topics.  Every year I speak with the owner, often asking questions about the same stones, but getting slightly different answers.  The communication problem makes me highly selective about which stones I will buy from her.  If the stone is from mainland China, and I can independently determine its likely mining origin, I will buy it since short supply chains are important.  If a stone is from another country, I am more cautious.
