Rainbow fluorite, aka calcium fluoride, is a widespread mineral which forms mainly in hydrothermal veins. It is a very fragile stone requiring special treatment; it needs to be polished manually because standard tumble machines would break it. Fluorite catches one’s eye with its astonishing colour palette. There are shades of green, blue, purple, pink or even yellow; in places it may be colourless and translucent. Its colours often alternate in zones, making fluorite even more popular among collectors.

Special conditions/ treatment: Rainbow fluorite is extremely prone to all kinds of damage, a temperature shock can cause it to crack. Also, do not put the stone on the direct sunlight and avoid cleaning it with chemical detergents.

About the product: Fluorite has been cut and smoothed out into a shape of a crystal point resembling an obelisk. Its base has been cut flat to make it stand solidly. The height of the fluorite points now available ranges approx. from 12 up to 20 cm and their weight approx. from 0,3 up to 1 kg. The product is sold by weight; the price is per 1 kg.
