THE CRYSTAL TOWER POINT
Rainbow Fluorite Tower Points are often used in healing. A Crystal Point is defined as having a sharp end where the Hexagonal becomes pyramid shape. This is very useful in healing. When we point the Crystal away from the body, in other words, when the base of the Crystal Point is on the body, we are drawing negative energy away from the body and when pointed inwards we are channelling energy towards the body. Points promote clarity and concentration.
As fluorite was only recognised from the 18th Century as an individual stone, no specific, documented history dates back to ancient times. It has been surmised that some mentions of topaz glass or other fragile stones may actually be a reference to fluorite.
The stone is widely sourced globally in over 9000 areas, and the world reserves are estimated at over 230 million tonnes. The largest deposits are found in South Africa, China and Mexico.
Crystal twinning is a common occurrence in fluorite, and the stone has four perfectly formed cleavage planes that aid in the production of octahedral fragments.
Fluorite is found in various colours, and the strength of fluorescence varies by the location of the source. It is a brittle stone with a vitreous lustre rated as a 4 on the Mohs scale.
