Item details

This is an ultra rare Blue Fluorite Octahedron crystal measuring 3/4" on the faces by 1 1/16" tip to tip.
It weighs 9.5 grams.

The coloration in this crystal is exquisite! It's deep and rich, with areas of natural variation in one corner. One of the tips is chipped, which could prove useful if one was wanting to wire-wrap or macrame this crystal for wearing as jewelry.

Blue is the rarest color of fluorite in the world. Only a few locations currently produce it - this fluorite comes from Socorro County, New Mexico - to my knowledge the only mine in the US to produce true blue fluorite.

*Please note this fluorite appears different colors in different light wavelengths - see photos for variation. Under halogen light, it appears violet blue, while under mercury vapor light and daylight, it appears teal.

Fluorite Octahedrons have a wonderfully appealing shape - a near-perfect representation of a fascinating platonic solid - two pyramids stuck base to base.
Though the crystals don't necessarily grow this way in nature, these geometric forms are created easily by simply breaking the fluorite along its natural cleavage points. This process is done by hand, and these little beauties result.

Hounds of Apollo did not mine or shape these crystals ourselves.

Fluorite can be found in many colors, from blue to green, purple to clear. Its crystal habit is very frequently made up of cubic shapes. Sometimes phantoms of other colors can be seen deep within the crystals.

Fluorite is a cleansing mineral, magnetizing and gathering negative energies from the environment. As such, it is recommended that you clean your fluorite with clean, clear water, as often as you feel it might be necessary.

Fluorite is also used for protection and grounding. It is said to increase intuitive abilities and to harmonize the human mind with universal consciousness and connection to Spirit.
Fluorite is said to aid in organization and processing of information, as it brings mental clarity and stability to otherwise chaotic situations.

Blue fluorite is said to catalyze spiritual awakening, and when used with the throat chakra, can aid in communication. As well, the serene color of blue fluorite brings inner peace and calm.

Fluorite is also used to balance brain chemistry, and for strengthening bones and teeth, and relieving pain associated with arthritis.

Average review
I did not experience this specimen as teal blue. Nonetheless it is a stunner and a keeper, even though I was planning to give it to a friend as a gift.
