Location: Fluorite is found in many different colors worldwide, some of the known deposits specifically for Pink Fluorite include Argentina, Belgium, China, England, France, Mexico, Morrocco, Pakistan and the United States (New Jersey).

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.

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 Pink Fluorite

Pink 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 Pink 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.  Pink Fluorite in particularly helps us to stay heart-centered and in alignment with what is truly in the best interest of ourselves and all other beings.  It is calming and loving, like a sturdy embrace and an encouraging smile, reminding us that we are fully capable of handling any situation that comes up.  Pink 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 77.

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.  Pink Fluorite is especially good for helping us navigate tricky relationships and create healthy romantic ones.  It helps us see the re-occurring patterns in our life, and how to shift those patterns so that the end result is happiness joy and love. 

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.  Pink Fluorite helps our mind to calm down when it starts to get too frantic and running through ‘worst case scenarios’.  Pink Fluorite reminds us to breath deeply, re-center ourselves in our heart and then proceed forward from a place of love and logic.

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.  Pink Fluorite is said to be particularly good for healing a “broken heart” –  specifically by re-aligning our brain chemistry, such as dopamine, oxytocin, searatonin, and endorphins – the natural chemicals that help us to “feel happy”.  

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

These Pink Fluorites were mined and tumbled in Peru.

I discovered the Peruvian tumbling company at the 2015 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. I was looking for another vendor, whom I had previously purchased from, when I ducked into their tent. When I saw their exceptional tumbled stones I was delighted. Unlike most tumbling companies, this one deals only in Peruvian exotics. Many of the stones they were selling were completely new to me! It has been fascinating to explore these new beauties and I look forward to seeing what new stones they bring out in the years to come!

It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Pink Fluorite for you.

Your Stone

This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Pink Fluorite or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Pink Fluorite measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and have a unique shape with soft edges. It will be as smooth as possible, but please bear in mind that this particular type of Fluorite is very fragile and rarely tumbles perfectly smooth. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty. 

The stone I choose for you will be smooth and free of chips and be a beautiful translucent pale pink. If you buy multiple stones, I will choose stones that look and feel particularly good together. Stones will be cleansed and smudged with sage before being shipped to you.

With their beautiful color and clean energies, these Pink Fluorites are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, use them in a crystal elixir, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.

Safe Handling of Pink Fluorite

Caution!!!

Fluorite is a fragile stone that can easily break or chip!  They should not be casually carried in a pocket or in a medicine bag. They are best kept as collectors pieces or on an altar, handling with care.

Fluorite will gradually lose its color over time if left in direct sunlight. It is always considered a “best practice” to keep your stones and crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible.

Unique Trait ♥

Fluorite has an incredible fluorescent glow when viewed under black light.

Good To Know:

Fluorites can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.

Fluorite can be energetically cleansed using any method. They will appreciate being soaked in fresh water, set outside to absorb the moonlight, and/or being smudged with smoke or incense. Use your own intuition to determine the best method.

Tumbled and fully smooth Fluorites can be safely used to make direct-infusion “Fluorite Water” for drinking or bathing. Before making any direct-infusion elixir ALWAYS check the mineralogical properties of the stone to ensure it is not toxic. Only use fully tumbled stones or natural Quartz points in direct-infusion elixirs, never rough stones. When in doubt, make an indirect-infusion elixir instead.
