Basic Facts about Rainbow Fluorite

Its Properties and Composition Necklace made with rainbow fluorite, amethyst, glass, and sterling silver.
  • Fluorite is halide mineral, composed of calcium fluoride (CaF2). It comes in a wide variety of colors - perhaps the widest variety of any mineral - hence the name "Rainbow fluorite" when used in jewelry showcasing a range of its color spectrum.
  • Rainbow fluorite can be found in a variety of colors and hues, from aqua-green to light yellow-green to deep purple - and everything in between! Gold, red, yellow, blue, grey...all of these varieties are possible, although green-to-purple is the most common found in jewelry applications.
  • In jewelry designs, rainbow fluorite works very well with other stones like amethyst, turquoise, onyx, moss agate, hematite and also freshwater pearls. Rainbow fluorite can be delicate and soft, however, and should be treated with care so that stones and beads do not chip and fracture. When looking for fluorite for jewelry, look for beads and cabs that have strong, rich colors and aren't too "washed out" or with dull edges. Often you may need to purchase several strands or bags of beads at once in order to get enough of the colors that you want to work with - but that can be a lot of the fun!
  • Rainbow fluorite is a powerful healing and meditative crystal, often used in massage therapy as it is good for the cellular and nervous systems. It's specific healing properties can depend on the color: green fluorite is good for cleansing, whereas clear fluorite is best for obtaining balance.

These heart pendants are great for jewelry-making designs! Turn a closely-matched pair into earrings, hang them on simple chains, or work them into beaded designs of many kinds. Great for Valentine's Day designs especially.

Fluorite: Is It Real or Fake?

Thinks to look out for

Fluorite is not one of the more expensive semi-precious stones in general, so I have not encountered many sales listings or specimens labelled as fluorite that was fake. Indeed, sometimes unscrupulous dealers will sell fluorite instead of other more expensive stones, such as charoite or amethyst! (See this image of so-called "Chinese Charoite" that is actually fluorite.)

Crafters may make "faux fluorite" using polymer clay, but the difference in appearance is quite obvious to anyone who has studied true fluorite first.

What is more common and problematic is the use of photo-enhancement techniques to make the color of fluorite beads and cabs look more intense than they really are. So be sure to examine photos of fluorite jewelry closely and carefully, if you cannot purchase pieces in person so you can study them first with your own eyes.
