Fluorite is an important industrial mineral containing calcium and fluorine. It is transparent and is available in purple, green, yellow, black, clear, pink, and other shades. Fluorite has a variety of uses. It is primarily used in the chemical industry. Fluorite is found in the fractures and cavities of some limestones and dolomites. It is a very common rock-forming mineral found in many parts of the world.
Fluorite is found in material or in processed form in three different grades (acid, ceramic, and metallurgical). Then it is called fluorescein. Crystal healers' belief in fluorite boosts the immune system and stimulates the regeneration of cells and DNA, especially in the skin and lungs, healing ulcers and wounds. Fluorite strengthens bone tissue and prevents rheumatism, arthritis, and spinal cord injuries.
Small deposits of fluorite are found in the United States, but the fluorites in use there are imported. China, Mexico, Mongolia, and South Africa are the primary suppliers of fluorite to the United States. It is found in the tropics of Mexico and Brazil.
