The Fluorite is known for its multiple colors in a single sample, this brilliant gem was discovered by humans, leaving them speechless by its hypnotizing appearance. However, years later it went from being just a beautiful stone to becoming the “stone of genius“. It is a crystal created by the earth that has the gift of linking itself with the intellectuality of its wearer in a way as curious as it is effective, which we will show below.
As we grow and become more knowledgeable, it can happen that our creativity could be limited by certain factors that condition its natural flow. The one creativity we had when we were children and made us so happy and fun. This situation is normal when we reach adulthood and tends to affect enormously in our daily lives and even in our work, generating boredom and decay.
Despite the fact that the greatest medicine for emotionally negative situations in life is professional help, at present, human beings are increasingly inclined towards the natural help that the earth can offer with crystals such as fluorite. If you need to organize your thoughts and let them flow, this could be your biggest help. This story is totally out of this world. You’ll see why…

Etymology and creation
In the depths of our beautiful planet earth, fluorite was created by nature; it was formed in different geological conditions. The first deposits were of hydrothermal origin, where it was kept in contact with other carbonate rocks. There the consolidation of the magmatic fluids that were produced after the solidification of rocks such as granite created them.
However, the stone evolved and formed in other sites; the second sites were pragmatic, in this sense, it is associated with cassiterite, tourmaline, apatite and topaz.
Part of the fluorite was also formed in magmatic rock cavities with abundant silica and in metamorphic rocks; if this was not enough, it was also formed in sedimentary situations from volcanic water deposits in closed basins. All this is a sign that each of the processes that happen on earth has an end; none happens at random. For the fluorite, the earth joined its most beautiful components and energy.
Fluorite is a compound of calcium fluoride, its name comes from the Latin “fluere” which means to flow, and it is attributed this name to its liquid characteristic when melted, and to tell the truth, nothing better than its name to describe its main property of mind liberation and wisdom.
- Chemical formula: CaF2 – calcium fluoride
- Physical Properties: thermoluminescence, and fluorescence
- Crystalline system:Cubic
In the year 1529 Georgious Agricola had already described it, while the German naturalist Elsholtz in 1676 also described its fluorescence characteristics. The fluorite is a mineral that has hardness 4 in the scale of mohs. It is very soft;it can be scratched with a steel knife. This quality together with its particular colors, makes it one of the most admired, aesthetically speaking, especially in Roman times. Fluorite has been mostly known in history for being a decorative and collector’s stone, as its property of “stone of genius” was only recently known. In Roman times it was used to carve some of the most beautiful vessels and ornaments of the time. At that time Pliny the old man called her murrhina.
Most of these pieces are kept in the most important museums.
Some civilizations used this stone to strengthen bones and teeth. This is not surprising considering that the fluoride we use today to improve our dental health comes from it.
Stone of intelligence
Fluorite is used to activate the intellectual side of the brain. It has been known to be a stone of “discernment” as it brings the energy of responsibility to the qualities of intuition. What fluorite does is allow its wearer to gain control of his own mind. Keeping the mind in control allows ideas and ingenuity to act in the proper way: Let’s say fluorite makes it easier for you to travel through the avenues of the brain.
Fluorite has the ability to maintain the balance of the different energies of the mind: the good and the bad, these two personalities inhabit the brains of all human beings and are naturally very difficult to carry. By regulating these energies, it is easier to maintain calm and silence.
When human beings discovered this marvelous stone, they quickly wanted to know its origin; when we investigated it, we discovered an interesting history that escapes our possibilities. There is an old legend hidden behind the crystal of a thousand colors.
The story goes that the fluorite stone reached the earth to make it wiser and to endow those who possess it with a knowledge superior to that which ordinary humans have. Fluorite would come in the age of aquarius. There are those who say that this era began to make its way in the mid-twentieth century; it is a time of renewal of humanity, where new guidelines were born with the aim of transmitting unconditional love, peace among the masses and love for the land and nature. The era of aquarius is a very important concept for believing astrologers and for practitioners of yoga and reiki. This era came to banish the root of hatred that was consuming the earth. Clearly this is not an easy task, but we are already living it. However, throughout history, an amulet was needed to battle and to stay protected until victory was achieved. The amulet for those who believed and still believe in the age of aquarius is our beloved fluorite.This stone did not magically reach us, experts say it was deposited by beings from another planet, yes, extraterrestrials. It was a gesture and collaboration to the humanity that inhabited the earth at that time and to those who would live on it in the future.
It is said that for this reason that samples of this gem can be found in many countries of the world: England, Germany, Canada, USA, Italy, Switzerland, France, Mexico, Peru, China, Brazil, Spain, Africa.
The most curious thing about this story is that the stone is discovered precisely in this segment of history when the human being was opening the way to the era of information and technology.
Some connoisseurs of this story may not believe in it, however there are others who made fluorite their amulet to reach the true intellectuality and banish the hatred of the past.
Fluorite Blue John
The most recognized fluorite, is known by the name of “Blue John“, although it is also known as Derbyshire Spar. This is a beautiful semi-precious mineral that is a form of fluorite decorated with purple-blue or half-yellowish bands. It actually has at least 12 different varieties with different stripes and grain tones.
The Blue John gem was created in a completely natural way through exposure to oily films millions of years ago. For the collectors it was very important and they gave it a very high value, because achieving it was not as simple as with some other gems. Blue John can only be found in the UK in the Blue John Cavern and the Treak Clif Cavern in Castleton in Derbyshire.
In ancient times it was used to create beautiful ornaments in the twentieth century, since then until now, its mining is still done on a very small scale.
Interestingly, small deposits of fluorite were recently found in China with colour bands similar to those of Blue John.
The blue John usually comes in nodules that are very easy to dislodge, this process can be done only with hammers, chisel and levers. The idea is that it can be done by an expert so that none of the parts are damaged. Blue John’s nodules are not easy to recognize, not just anyone can identify one. Only the most expert miners will be able to detect a true sample of this, even by its weight.
The Blue John Cavern is illuminated by electric light and it is suggested that the Blue John Cavern is the best that the general public can see in Western Europe.
The stone of magical colors
The color of fluorite has been a topic of discussion for hundreds of years. Strangely enough, fluorite itself is colorless, yet before our eyes nature presents it in multiple hues. The yellowish and greenish colors can be observed in this gem as well. Fluorites are so magical that they have the faculty to emit light, they become visible in the dark generating a fable environment, however, this does not happen all the time but in certain circumstances.
The first of these stones to be seen glowing in the dark was observed by Edward Daniel Clarque, who saw a green fluorite that emits a violet light when heated to boiling temperature.
Each one of their colors acts in the human subconscious in a different way, below is a brief review of the functionality of each of them.
Green Fluorite: The green fluorite energies are oriented to the heart. The human being finds it very difficult to control his emotions. Sometimes strong emotions such as love, hatred, resentment or fear act as a kind of curtain that does not allow you to think clearly and clouds reason and intelligent thoughts. The color green will allow its wearer to free himself from conflicting emotions that do not allow him to act intelligently.
Blue Fluorite: The energy of the blue color in company of the energetic field of the fluorite allows the carrier to connect the conscious and subconscious mind. This opens the way to clarity and calm. Calm, wisdom and love are necessary elements to cope with life today, as well as being the main components of the age of aquarius.
Purple Fluorite: Purple Fluorite is said to work in the third eye, awakening the sixth sense that allows you to sharpen your intuition; a skill that will allow you to better know and evaluate your environment and the way you interact with it.
Yellow Fluorite: Yellow is often related to joy, but what we will tell you today is that it is also the color of intellectual activities. Wisdom and creativity are related to the energy that transmits the color yellow. A yellow fluorite stone is an ideal gift for a creative in a state of blockage.
Transparent fluorite: The white and transparent tones of the fluorite complete the cycle of intellectuality by strengthening the spirit and closing the way to any emotional blockage that may take place.
In astrological terms, fluorite can be used by the natives of all zodiacal signs; however, it has special affinity with the natives of Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo, Cancer, Pisces, Libra, Aquarius and Leo.
How to use fluorite?
The best way to take the energies of this stone is to place it in the environment where you want it to work. If you want it to act on you it is advisable to place it close to the ear lobes.
Some believers place a very clean fluorite stone into water and then drink it. Others prefer to simply spray the water in the environment they frequent.
How to clean fluorite?
That’s right, this stone should be cleaned right after it’s used. You must be very careful because unlike the rest of the stones, itcannot be cleaned with traditional methods. When using salt and water, their characteristic shine will be reduced. The ideal way to protect your fluorite sample is to immerse it in a cold concoction of distilled water and sage, for just 30 seconds. It is important to remember that it is very soft and can be scratched easily, so to dry it, use water vapors and store it separately from the rest of other pieces.
It is wonderful to discover what is hidden in a young stone like this, especially because over the years it has been known mostly for being used on industrial processes related to metallurgy, iron and steel, and glass manufacturing. As well as for beautiful pieces of decoration. It is now that the human being finally managed to relate it to enlightenment.
Fluorite can help you eliminate any electromagnetic fog that may retain negative energies. It can providecalm and relaxation, and it can free you from anxiety.
The stone of intellectuality is the best gift that can be given to a person with a certain disorder in their life. Reiki practitioners fervently believe in this stone to establish order in the environment in which they are allowed to release their energies.
It turns out that this gem means so much more: the birth of an era and the restoration of the order of your ideas so that they can flow wisely. Did you already know this stone? We are anxious to hear your story.
