Everything you need to know about Rainbow Fluorite.
Fluorite is the mineral form of calcium fluoride (it is composed of the elements calcium and fluorine CaF2) and is a member of the halide minerals family. Measuring 4 on the Mohs scale, this mineral is quite soft and fragile.
Rainbow Fluorite comes in a wide range of colours and has consequently been dubbed "the most colourful mineral in the world". Every colour of the rainbow in various shades is represented by fluorite samples, along with white, black, and clear crystals. The most common colours are purple, blue, green, yellow, or colourless.
Rainbow Fluorite can be found in many places worldwide, including major mines located in Brazil, Mexico, and the USA.
Real Rainbow Fluorite glows under ultraviolet light. Fluorite hardness is very low, so there will be a lot of tiny scratches on the surface of real fluorite. Fake fluorite is mostly represented by glass or plastic. Fake fluorite made of glass can have bubbles and doesn’t glow under UV light.

Fluorite has been used for millennia for a variety of purposes.
This mineral's name was derived from the Latin word "fluere" (which means to flow) because it is used as flux in iron smelting to help remove impurities from the iron during the processing of the ore.
However, it was originally called Fluorospar, and this name is what Fluorite is often referred to in industry.
The phenomenon of fluorescence was named in the 19th century after the mineral Fluorite because many high grade pure fluorite samples exhibit a fluorescent effect under UV light.
In ancient Rome, Fluorite was one of the most prized crystals of the Caesars due to its complex designs. Historical documents show that Emperor Nero paid for a Fluorite cup, which would have cost $300,000 in today’s dollars.
