Rainbow Fluorite, also known as Fluor Spar, is a stunning stone that displays an amazing range of colors. Some of the most beautiful pieces are found in Mexico, England, and China. However, Fluorite used to be mined in Southern Illinois in the United States. In fact, this was where my very first crystal digging experience took place.
When I was about 8 years old, I was visiting my grandparents over Spring break from school. Their home wasn’t far from a former Fluorite mining site at Cave in Rock, Illinois. My grandpa took me to search the mining “dump pile” for rocks with little bits of Fluorite on them. I was astonished to find gorgeous Fluorite crusts on some of the stones, ranging from purple to yellow. In fact, I still have one of the stones I found on that trip – and it’s one of my most treasured crystals (though it may not be considered conventionally beautiful).

More About Rainbow Fluorite:
Fluorite, once called the “home of the rainbow,” is a stone of amazing variety. First, there are the colors: green, purple, blue, yellow, which are often found in beautiful banded formations. Only tourmaline shows more color variation.
Fluorite also shows fluorescence (and yes, it is the source of that word) under ultraviolet light, and, in some forms, with heating. One form called chlorophane will even glow if you simply hold it in your hand!
The name “fluorite” comes from the Latin word for “flow,” because fluorite melts at fairly low temperatures. And because it’s so easy to melt, it has long been shaped into figurines, drinking vessels, and other useful items. The Romans thought fluorite cups made their wine taste better — probably because of the resin melted in to make the cup hold its form. The chemical composition of Fluorite is CaF2.
Rainbow Fluorite promotes clear thinking and allows you to see what’s most important in a given situation.
If you’ve been feeling scattered or pulled in lots of different directions, work with this crystal to get you back on track. It can also bring clarity to your role in projects, relationships, or social groups and help you better understand what people expect from you. However, this doesn’t mean you need to agree with these roles. Whether you choose to conform or rebel against these societal expectations, Rainbow Fluorite will guide you on your path.
This crystal is known for providing mental clarity and for this reason, it’s deeply connected with the time of the Crow Moon (the Full Moon in March).
It pairs well with Black Tourmaline and Blue Apatite to shed some light on your current situation. Rainbow Fluorite can help give you the mental clarity to hone your skills and tackle your most pressing planning tasks.
When your mind is clear, fresh ideas come with ease instead of with a struggle, and you’re better able to visualize the bigger picture of your life path. This clarity allows you to see how all of the pieces fit together so that you can organize and prioritize your plans for efficiency and flow.

Cool write-up on Rainbow Fluorite, and great timing! My little niece was just asking me about one in her collection. I know it’s a popular favorite with stone carvers because it’s soft and has good cleavage. But I never heard about it’s being melted into shapes. With a melting point of over 2500 F, I would expect to lose a lot of the color. Very interesting. Both the jeweler and the glass blower in me are intrigued. This calls for further research. Thank you for the inspiration.
Do you know any special properties of the deep blue/green and purple Fluorite specimens from the Rogerley Mine in England? I have several crystals, and find their energy very soothing. The colors are intense, as is the photo fluorescence. It’s the strongest anxiety reducing fluorite I’ve ever come across.
Thank you so much I love how I became aware of rainbow fluorite and the info you shared ha just increased my desire to work with this stone more
Hi Jacquelyn, we’re happy you enjoyed the info! I love rainbow fluorite too, such a great stone to work with! <3 Crystal Blessings
Love ?this. It has so many properties! I feel really drawn to this crystal. Initially I thought it was because of the rainbow connection but on further reading I see it’s also associated with ? Libra my air sign and Cherry Blossom one of my favourite flowers! Please can you elaborate and tell me how you come by these associations. A very interesting article. Thank you ???xxx
Hey Nicola! Thanks for reading <3 🙂
Isn't it an amazing crystal?! <3 The associations are made intuitively by Ashley's many years of working with crystals- so cool that this one resonated with you in so many ways; we just love those synchronicities!
How does one get the healing and positive properties of this crystal? Do you have to wear it constantly or just have it in a room with you? Thanks, Sandy
Hey Sandy! There are several ways to receive the wonderful healing of this & any crystal. You can wear it in jewelry, carry one in your pocket, sleep with it by your bed, keep it in the room with you, or meditate with it <3 Crystal blessings! 🙂
Hi Amber! Alongside conventional treatment and guidance from one’s physician- we do find opals to be a good energetic complement for this. But do feel free to use bloodstone if you’re feeling intuitively drawn to it!
Just a reminder though- Energy Healing is not meant to replace conventional medicine, but rather to complement and enhance it. Energy Healing should only be used with the understanding that it is not an independent therapy, but one that is a part of a holistic healing approach <3 Crystal blessings!
I find the information on this crystal to be amazing. It’s got so many things it helps with that I want to make a necklace or keychain for my children so they have something to help them be confident and believe in themselves. Thanks for the info., I truly appreciate being able to see what each crystal does what and I hoe you are blessed for what you do trying to help others. Love and light! Crystal Blessings! ???????
I agree, it’s an incredible crystal. 🙂 That sounds like a lovely idea! It’s a pleasure, thank you for your kind words <3 Crystal Blessings!
I’m from Southern Illinois!! This is crazy, so I’ve recently started getting into crystals and I was listening to a podcast the other day about Amethyst and I remember back when my husband worked construction when we first got married 9 years ago he worked out near Cave in Rock and he would find these purple rocks and bring them home to me because my favorite color has always been purple. So while listening to that podcast I pulled them out thinking they were amethyst (I probably have like 30-50 of them) and was disappointed when I realized they were fluorite instead. I was bummed because I really wanted to make a necklace out of one of the bigger ones but decided not to because I thought they didn’t have any healing type property to them. I’m so glad I ran across this episode to learn that they do! It’s like I was meant to find you! Thank you so much!
Hi Anna! Thank you for sharing your story! I’m happy you have found a new appreciation for fluorite, I’m sure they will make a beautiful necklace! Crystal blessings! <3
Thank you for your article, it is wonderful. I love Fluorite, (especially Rainbow Fluorite because lately I’m obsessed with Rainbows!) I have a couple pieces but I’m not sure where they are from. I recently won a drawing to win a piece of Fluorite from my school, Crystal Vaults! (So the universe definitely wants me to have some!)
I was wondering about the pairing of Fluorite with other crystals. Why Black Tourmaline and Blue Apatite? Any alternative suggestions? Just curious.
Thanks for you input,
Hi Natalie, other stone pairings will depend on your intention. In the article, it mentioned the intention as “shed some light on your current situation”, black tourmaline can help you to view the world objectively with clear, rational thought and neutrality and blue apatite allows you to see what is truly real in the world and motivates you to be who you really are. Sor for this intention, these stones make sense. I recommend doing a quick search of crystals to combine with fluorite and you’ll find quite a few great combinations along with recommended uses for those combinations. The options are truly limitless! Crystal Blessings <3
Great Episode and Information on Rainbow Fluorite. I would like to know specifically how you work with this crystal for joint, back pain and arthritis.
Also looking forward to using it during yoga to see if it helps balance.
Rainbow Fluorite sounds like it will become my new favorite crystal.
Who would you suggest getting reputable fluorite crystals for bracelets and earrings from.
Thank you for all your great information.
Hi Sherry! That’s great you found this article helpful and opened you up to the possibilities of this amazing stone! Rainbow fluorite has been noted to relieve the energetic causes of pain from joint, back, and arthritis pain, holding the intention to relieve the pain is really important, but should never replace traditional medicine. Crystal healing is meant to complement and enhance traditional medicine by taking a more holistic approach. Here is a list of reputable and ethical places to buy crystals online: https://loveandlightschool.com/best-places-buy-crystals-online/ I hope this helps! Crystal blessings! <3
I recently bought black tormoline this information was very helpful thank you
I had bought a Rainbow Fluorite pendant at least several years ago. I never actually had the desire to claim it as mine. Now I know. It was meant for someone else. The person I sent it to loves it.
Thank you so much for sharing a bit of your story with us! That’s awesome the person who now has it is enjoying it’s energetic support! <3
All natural crystals have a crystalline arrangement, being cubic, monoclinic, triclinic etc
In the process of faceting of a gem, most faceting is done around the `c` axis of crystallization and cut with respect to certain angle that would change according to the ethereal emanations that you desire from the gem, that in turn would influence your auric field when you can close to them.
It would be an amplifier of the crystal properties, in the case of a `Record Keeper`, you would obtain a better amplification of your desires.
Hi Jose, thanks for your comment! <3 Crysal Blessings
Hi Denise, it is ok as long as you feel good about it. Some people are very sensitive to the energies of crystals, others not so much. So as long as it doesn’t make you feel bad/weird, I don’t see why you can’t do it ?
My only concern would be that the crystals could damage each other if you mix tumbled and raw crystals in your dish.
Hi Tommy, that is very true, some people are more sensitive than others when it comes to sensing the subtle energies of crystals.
Hi, I read your article about rainbow fluorite and I found it very interesting. I learned that rainbow fluorite is a type of mineral that has a spectrum of colors and a calming effect on the mind and body. I also learned that it can help with focus, creativity, intuition, and inner harmony. I think it’s amazing how this stone can have so many benefits and meanings. I would love to have one in my collection. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and passion about rainbow fluorite.
Absolutely!!! Rainbow Fluorite is one of my favorite crystals to work with.
