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.  Blue Fluorite, however, is one of the rarer 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 Blue Fluorite

Blue 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.  Blue Fluorite is one of the rarer colors.

Healing Properties of Blue 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.  Blue Fluorite in particular evokes spiritual awakenings, and helps us to take the brilliant flashes of insight we may receive in a moment and remember and integrate it after we return to our usual state of being.  Blue Fluorite is attuned to the Throat and Third Eye Chakras and linked to Capricorn and Pisces. It is connected to the element of Wind and vibrates to the number 2 and 7.

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.  Blue Fluorite has an especially calm energy and helps us to speak clearly and concisely, and to listen without prejudice.

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.  Blue Fluorite magnifies all these positive mental traits and energies.

Physical: Fluorite’s energy is said to inspire universal energies to activate and nourish the body, helping it to reach a state of perfection. Fluorite is most often used by metaphysical healers to treat teeth and mouth problems as well as brain chemistry. It is also said to improve physical mobility and ease arthritis and psychosomatic allergies. Fluorite is commonly used to dispel electromagnetic smog from computers, cell phones, and other devices.  Blue Fluorite is thought to be especially good for treating eye problems, as well as the ear, nose and throat.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

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.

  13. Beth S (Kentucky)

    The blue fluorite arrived Monday and I’m more than pleased. I’d expected just a clear, or maybe cloudy, crystal with a beautiful blue-green color, but even before I got it unwrapped, wow! a flash of brilliant rainbow winked through the tissue paper at me. When I held it unwrapped in my hand, I was completely blown away by all the beautiful things happening inside this stone. So many interior plains, rainbows, semi-transparent and not-so-transparent veils over more and more depths I’ve rarely seen even in a quartz. This stone is alive with mysteries that aren’t dark but sparkling and bright.
