Fluorite belongs to the spar family, as all other members of the family, Fluorite may be separated into flakes. According to european folklore, it is the home of the rainbows and therefore magic and imagination.
Formerly called Fluorspar, Fluorite has been said to have limited use as a gemstone due to it’s relatively soft demeanor. However, the wide range of colors and the frequent incidence of more than one color in a single specimen has made Fluorite an interesting stone with a wonderful display of colors.

Yttrium: Lavender, Yttrium Fluorite is an unusual, rare and beautiful form of purple Fluorite from Mexico. It is unusual in the fact that it does not cleave as other varieties of Fluorite and is extremely dense. Fluorite is known for being a mental body stone, but Yttrium is very different in the fact that it is attached to the physical world. While this may seem an unusual property for a mentally orientated mineral, it does serve an important function. Many people are too mentally oriented, they are thinkers, philosophers and dreamers who lack the discipline or grounded-ness to bring their ideas into reality. Yttrium Fluorite assists in grounding the ideas of these thinkers by manifesting those plans–making things happen. Another way the energies of this stone maybe utilized is by bringing down mental concepts to a level more readily understood by the average person. Minerals such as Selenite give us access into higher wisdom, Calcite can bridge the gap between that reality and our own, but a mineral such as Yttrium Fluorite will bring that information down through the physical plane to a level more easily understood
