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 Yellow Fluorite

Yellow 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 Yellow 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.  Yellow Fluorite shines a bright light on the links of love that connect all beings with each other and with the divine.  By meditation on these links, we can better know our own role and how to be a force of goodness and strength.  Yellow Fluorite is attuned to the Solar Plexus Chakra and linked to the astrological signs of Capricorn and Pisces. It is connected to the element of Wind and vibrates to the number 9.

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.  Yellow Fluorite is especially good for group dynamics, encouraging each person to contribute to the whole and for the group to work together for the greater good. 

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.  Yellow Fluorite in particular enhances creativity and heighten intellectual thought processes – making it an excellent stone for scientists engaged in ‘thought experiments’ as well as inventors who are working out the practical aspects and details.    

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.  Yellow Fluorite is said to be good for lowering cholesterol and supporting healthy liver functions. 

Blue Green 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.

Earth to Pocket

These Yellow Fluorites were mined in Argentina and tumbled in the United States.

I first encountered the US wholeseller at the 2015 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. Right away I was impressed with the quality of the tumbled stones, and especially the appearance of hard-to-find tumbled stones such as Chiastolite. After talking with the owner, who self-proclaims herself “the Tumbled Queen,” I was even more pleased. The Tumbled Queen knows her stock inside and out and we happily discussed the geology and origins of various rare minerals. I later bought from her again six months later at the 2015 Franklin, NC Gem and Mineral Show.

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

Your Stone

This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Yellow Fluorite or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Yellow Fluorite measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and have a unique shape with soft edges. 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 golden yellow. 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 Yellow 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.

    The Yellow Fluorite has wonderful things going on in it, lines like flowing water catching the light, differing densities of vibrant golden-yellow, and lots & lots of little rainbows. This happy stone seems very confident of itself and I look forward to getting to know it.
