Fluorite is one of the gentlest, yet most effective quartz based crystals to use during times of transformation, change or chaos. In 2013, change certainly appears to be a key word for many.
The word Fluorite comes from the Latin word fluo meaning a flow or stream of water. Water is the element of emotions, which is why this crystal has a vibration that calms and eases internal chaos.
Fluorite is one of the few crystals that has two internal lattice structures. In layman’s terms, this means that Fluorite should not be left in direct sunlight, as sunlight causes one of these structures to break down and leaves the crystal in a fragile or brittle state. The slightest knock or bump will then cause bits of the Fluorite to fall off or outright shatter the crystal. Therefore keep Fluorite in a darker part of the home, away from direct sunlight unless it needs to be cleansed and charged.
Fluorite is also one of the oldest and most famous crystals found naturally in Britain, with Derbyshire Blue John Fluorite being mined only in Castleton, Derbyshire. Blue John is now a rare and highly prized form of Fluorite, with only a few hundred kilos mined from the Blue John Cavern each year to use in ornaments or jewellery.
Fluorite is also excellent to use when our respiratory system is congested. It’s vibration seems to loosen phlegm and catarrh, making it a great crystal for use when having a cough or cold. In all cases, if we are drawn to Fluorite, it is usually to ‘ease’ either physical or emotional issues. If we are drawn to Green Fluorite in particular, this often indicates that we didn’t receive the right amount of love and support from our mother during childhood. Fluorite is a great crystal to use this month as both the seasons and energies on our planet begin to move into their natural state of flux and change.
