If you are a student or need to undertake any studying right now then this is the stone for you. It's great for learning. First of all it will help to neutralise any stress you have while trying to study and will clear away any negative energy so you have a nice clear mind to begin. Then it enhances your concentration, shutting off any mental blocks you might be experiencing. If you have those nagging thoughts that always seems to get into your head when you're trying to do something that needs concentration this gemstone will help to fend them off. Actually, with those attributes it could be a good gemstone for writers, or even blog posters who keep thinking of everything else they need to be doing (*cough* ironing) - I'm not talking about me here, well maybe...

Once you've spent time reading and you need to get your work written down it'll help with that too. The stone will bring intuition to your mind when trying to think what to do if your mind is stuck. It'll help to make the decisions on what to actually put down and be happy with those decisions, as it stimulates both those attributes in you. You'll feel more positive and happy with what you've done - it can be so easy to be thinking 'Oh I should have added that, or not put down that', can't it? Not for nothing was it used by the Ancient Egyptians and Chinese for carving, although perhaps that might have been down to it being a strong stone, but no doubt it helped them to think about what they wanted to carve and get it right.

When I first heard the name Fluorite I did wonder about teeth and yes, it is linked to fluoride that word coming from Fluorite, it does help with strengthening bone tissue which includes tooth enamel.

Other uses are for attracting wealth, and for this reason it is advised to keep a stone on your work desk. You can keep one by your computer if you use one to relieve stress.

It has many colours, including a clear one like mine, and has been called home of the rainbows, and also the most colourful mineral in the world. If you were wondering, another word comes from this stone - fluorescent - as many of it's colours often are, my clear one has many colours showing in the right light although not actually a fluorescent one and is very pretty, I think.

I had no idea that fluorite had so many uses. The attracting wealth alone, would be a good enough reason to have one!!
