Fluorite was named in 1797 by C.A.G.Napion from Latin, fluere = "flow". Fluorite, like many other minerals, fluoresces, or emits light under UV rays. The name fluorescence is just derived from fluorite. It is known and sought after for its rich range of colors. We encounter fluorites that are clear, green, purple, yellow, blue, brown, orange, etc., or striped. .It occurs in many types of rocks, whether on hydrothermal veins, in greisen, granite, pegmatite, marble and in metamorphic rocks. Most often in the shape of a cube, rarely as octahedrons. Fluorite has been used as a precious stone since ancient times, in China it was used to make amulets and small decorative items.
