The name Fluorite was derived from the Latin word “fluere” which translates to “to flow”, it was given by Carlos Antonio Galeani Napione in 1779. An alternative name used for Fluorite is Fluorspar. Fluorite is made up of both calcium and fluoride. When held to ultraviolet light, the Fluorite will fluorescence/glow, in fact, the term fluorescence was derived from the word fluorite. It can be seen essentially with any color in the spectrum which is why it is known as the most colorful mineral in the world, but it is most commonly found in green, purple, blue, and yellow. Fluorite can only be seen in color when it contains various impurities because pure fluorite is colorless. It contains a glass-like luster and can be found either transparent or subtranslucent. Fluorite is one of the easier minerals to distinguish compared to other minerals due to its cleavage and hardness.

Historically this mineral dates as far back as the 1500s when it had various industrial uses. During the production of aluminum, it has been said that fluorite is used in order to lower the melting point of the metal. Not only has fluorite been used in producing aluminum but microscope manufacturers have also used fluorite in the production of its lenses. Due to its soft texture, Fluorite is often used for carving, as well as making cookware due to it being ceramic-like.

Fluorite can be found in various places around the world such as China, South Africa, Mongolia, France, Russia, Mexico, the United States, Pakistan, and Madagascar. The world's main producers of fluorite are China and Mexico. It is formed as a late crystallizing mineral found in igneous rocks, particularly in limestones. Fluorite is most common in granitic pegmatites.

In crystal beliefs, it is said that fluorite can both absorb and neutralize negative energy and stress. It is also said that it can increase concentration and self-confidence, along with aiding in decision making.
