Yellow Fluorite Mineralogy

Where does Yellow Fluorite come from?

Fluorite is found in many different colors worldwide.  Notable deposits for Yellow Fluorite are in Argentina, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Namibia, Spain, and the United States.

Mining and Treatments

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.

All Fluorites are natural, enhanced only through cutting and polishing.

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.

Yellow Fluorite’s energy works well with its family – other Halide minerals.  Try it in combination with Tiffany Stone.  Or try it with different colors: Blue, Green, and Rainbow.

Yellow Fluorite Formation and Crystal Associates

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. Purple, green, and yellow are the most common colors, although colorless, blue,  pink, red, and black specimens are also found.

Yellow Fluorite’s energy works well with its “friends” – crystal associates formed in the same geological environment.  Try it in combination with Calcite, Celestine, Galena, Pyrite, and Snow Quartz

History of Yellow Fluorite

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.

For 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.
