More information about fluorites
Fluorite is composed of calcium fluoride, it is the fluorinated spar of miners. Fluorite is cubic, with cleavage giving an octahedron. It is mainly a vein mineral where it accompanies the metal ores and sometimes constitutes the main filling. It is then exploited as a flux. Its luster is weak, but the beauty, sometimes the size of the crystals, especially cubic crystals, reaching 1 millimeter and the variety of its colors make it a mineral sought after by collectors. Violet and green hues dominate, but fluorite can also be colorless, blue, yellow or pink, and sometimes black in uraniferous veins. Its colors are often arranged in zones that can give beautiful objects after polishing. Fluorite crystals in private collections often come from the Blue John Mine in Cumburland (Great Britain) where fluorite has been mined as an ornamental stone since Roman times. Fluorite sometimes presents the phenomenon of dichroism : green by transparency, it appears mauve by reflection. Some remarkable specimens have been found in the United States, Australia and Canada.
