Rainbow Fluorite Tumbled Stones
THE TUMBLED STONE
Crystals kept close to the body are often used for healing or protective purposes, they affect the entire body and energy field. The particular location of the stone is also not absolutely critical in most cases. Placing the stone on or near the specific area related to the purpose of treatment is often faster and has a more focused effect.
However, as in any form of healing, the healing energies will go to where it is intended and to where the healing is needed. You can also direct and focus the energy from the crystal by intention. Sometimes you will feel that a stone needs to be somewhere that has no pocket or practical place to wear jewellery. Little pouches can be pinned inside clothing for fine-tuned placement.
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.
