Originally referred to as “fluorspar”, this mineral gets its name from a Latin word that means “to flow”. Fluorite was used as a flux when smelting metal, and we can find an understanding of how it works with energy in both its name origin and its original uses. Perhaps you don’t use flux and are unfamiliar with what it is for. The simplest explanation is it is used to help prevent oxidation. When metal becomes unclean, it can’t fuse together. Flux works to provide a barrier between the metal and the heat. Fluorite also lends its name to a particular property we can find in several minerals and natural items – fluorescence. Fluorescence is the act of taking certain wavelengths of light (such as electromagnetic radiation) and converting them into another wavelength. When this occurs, the item exhibiting fluorescence emits a colorful glow of light.
So what does this mean in terms of energy? Fluorite takes the wavelengths of energy around it and converts them into something else. While it does this, it provides a protective barrier between itself (or whoever is close to it) and the energy of the world. Many minerals transmute energy. This one, however, doesn’t just take energy and change it; it provides the opportunity to change along with the energy. It helps one adapt, and blend with the less than positive in a positive way. Just as the flux helps to join metal, without the harmful stuff getting in the way of a successful merging; fluorite helps one grow and learn without all the harmful or damaging aspects that come along with growth and healing. This doesn’t mean it removes all chances of failure or drama because nothing will do that. It just means it improves your chances if you are ready to act. Same as the comparison of using flux, we have a limited amount of time that the barrier is effective. Once the flux has all burnt off, we then have to add more or be done with our project. Fluorite can give us the space and protection needed for us to harness our potential in times of conflict, or it can also help us maintain a clear energy field if we are mindful, so that we can flow with whatever comes our way.
