Geology: Fluorite, which is also called fluorspar, has a hardness of 4. It is not only a much sought after healing stone, but also, because of the great diversity of its crystalline forms and colors, a very popular stone to collect. Fluorite is found in nature as beautiful cubes and octahedron crystals. Due to its good facility, the octahedrons can also be cleaved into cubes. In glass and metal processing, fluorite was used in the Middle Ages as a flux for prophylaxis and it is still extracted in Germany, in the Black Forest. Sites where fluorite was once found, in the Oberpfalz region and other locations in Germany, have now been exhausted. The main sites, where fluorite can be found today, are in Spain, Madagascar, Mexico, the USA and, most of all, in China.

Historical tradition: "As in the Old Testament of the bible, following the flood, Noah sent out doves to find out, whether land could be found on Earth again. They reported, that all the rainbows begin to shine down to the Earth, in order to return its fantastic colors to it. Therefore,not only the plants regained their rich green color and the sea its deep blue, but also all living creatures once more showed their resplendent colors. After all the precious stones had regained their colors, only fluoride was left. All of the rainbows withdrew into this, in order to also remain on Earth". Since then, according to this old tradition, fluoride has displayed the fantastic colors of the rainbow. Above all, in China the stone is worn as a bringer of luck, to protect the wearer against black magic, color blindness and thoughts of committing suicide. Since it contains something of all stones in it, it is considered to be the stone of intuition, love, luck and confidence.
