Fluorite is one of the most sought after and collectable crystals in the world, because of its luminosity and beauty. It has a soft and glassy appearance that is often very vibrant. Fluorite is sometimes called fluorspar. The name is derived from the Latin word ‘fluo’, meaning to flow.
Fluorite is also used as a source of fluorine for fluoridated water. Many people believe fluorite has a calming effect on the body. During the eighteenth century it was ground into powder and mixed with water to treat kidney disease. Ancient Romans believed that drinking alcoholic beverages out of vessels carved from fluorite would help prevent drunkenness, which is similar to the beliefs attached to purple amethyst.
