Learn About Fluorite Minerals and Gems: Fluorite Gemstone Source - GemSelect

Loose Fluorite Gemstone Source From Gemselect 

Fluorite is a gemstone that is available in a bouquet of vivid and brilliant colors ranging from purple, blue, green, yellow, colorless, brown, pink, and black. Fluorite is known as being the "The Most Colorful Mineral in the World."  Most fluorite stones are single color specimens, but sometimes, rare gemstones are found with multicolor designs usually available in bands or zoned patterns.

When headed, Fluorite will actually glow and under ultraviolet light, fluorite is known to fluoresce. It is a rather soft stone with a hardness rating of only 4 on Mohs scale, so really it should only be used in pendants, brooches or earrings. Despite it’s wonderful unique colors and limited supply, Fluorite is still a very affordable stone. Romans used to believe that drinking alcohol from cups made of fluorite would prevent them from getting drunk. Amethyst is also a stone believed to prevent one from getting drunk too. One has to wonder though, if you don’t want to get drunk, why not just not drink alcohol? Abstinence surely must be the best cure for drunkenness!
