Fluorite is a mineral with a bouquet of colours which range from purple, green, blue, yellow, colourless, brown, pink, black and deep orange.
Fluorite glows when heated and fluoresces under ultraviolet light, hence its name which originates from the latin verb fluorite meaning to flow, it can be found in Argentina, Austria, Canada, China, UK and other western european countries as well as, as far afield in places like Mexico, Namibia and Morocco.
Folklore & legend states that many people believe that fluorite has a calming effect on the body, during the 19th century it was used for medicinal purposes and as an aid to general well being.
The stones/chips supplied are graded as A-B grade "semi precious" gemstones in their "natural form", having been factory cleaned, drilled, faceted and lightly polished.
A - B grade semi precious gemstones are readily available and cheaper to purchase compared to AAA/AAA+ grade gemstones due to the fact that they have not been graded to a "carat weight" necessary for wide scale commercial stone setting, which would then go on to be used alongside precious metals such as gold & platinum to create various jewellery pieces.
Many people assume that gemstones such as emeralds, sapphires & rubies are super expensive to buy, which isnt the case...the many semi precious chips & stones available are mostly offcuts & surplus pieces of the larger (carat graded stone) shaped & cut into beads or ornaments and offered as "semi precious" and not "precious" gemstones as found and sold in jewellery peices in mainstream/independent jewellery shops/outlets.
