What Is Rainbow Fluorite Made Of?
Fluorite is the mineral form of calcium fluoride (it is composed of the elements calcium and fluorine) and is a member of the halide minerals family.
Pure Fluorite is colourless and transparent: impurities within the crystal are what causes the range of colours observed in Rainbow Fluorite.
What Colour Is Fluorite?
Fluorite can display the whole spectrum of colour: for this reason, it has been dubbed "the most colourful mineral in the world".
This unique stone can display specimens with one pure colour, or multiple colours in banded patterns, as is found in Rainbow Fluorite.

Rainbow Fluorite History
Fluorite has been used for millennia for a variety of purposes.
This mineral's name was derived from the Latin word "fluere" (which means to flow) because it is used as flux in iron smelting to help remove impurities from the iron during the processing of the ore.
However, it was originally called Fluorospar, and this name is what Fluorite is often referred to in industry.
The phenomenon of fluorescence was named in the 19th century after the mineral Fluorite because many high grade pure fluorite samples exhibit a fluorescent effect under UV light.
