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. This piece is from Sichuan Province in China.

Rainbow fluorite uniqueness: 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 single contact with hot water means a temperature shock and the stone cracks. Also, do not put the stone on the direct sunlight or clean it with chemical detergents.
