Glossary of Stones

  • Flourite

    Fluorite grows in cubic, octahedral and dodecahedral patterns alongside quartz, calcite and barite. It forms in clear, pink, green (the most common), yellow, blue and purple colorations. Multiple color variations will occur within one formation or specimen. It can be found in China, Mexico, the USA, Germany, and England.

    This is a very gentle mineral that has multiple uses. Because of its multiple coloration growth patterns it is a stone that shows us the value of family and community. Always a good stone to keep in the family room, den or dining room where the family gathers, it can keep harmonious relationships fine tuned.

    This is a powerful stone to use during global healing circles to remind the light group of the Family of Man and the interconnectedness we all share. Fluorite knows no segregation and sees only integrated spiritual awareness on both the third and the fourth dimensions. Because of this multi-dimensional awareness, Fluorite understands what can be seen in the beginnings of fourth dimensional spiritual awareness can be manifested into third dimensional reality.

    Place a dish of small multi-colored octahedrons in the center of your group, focus your attention into a larger octahedron during your daily meditation, or keep a green cluster at your workspace to maintain harmonious focus throughout the day.

    Fluorite can also bring energy to the surface. It can bring blocks or negativity to the surface of the body and assist in releasing old programs from the cells. Each color of the Fluorite can be used to correlate to a chakra. Green Fluorite can be used for the fourth chakra and heart area; blue Fluorite can be used to clear the throat area and real TMJ; yellow Fluorite can be placed on the third chakra for greater clarity and to release and remove mental stagnation or old thought patterns; and purple Fluorite can be used around the crown chakra and sixth chakra to open the spiritual awareness and communication to spirit teachers and guides.

    Purple Fluorite clusters are also an excellent mineral to use at your desk or workspace to promote concentration and enhance your intuition, especially for writers or creative people. And, a blue Fluorite will bring order to an unruly situation.
