The names of Fluorite beads or fluorspar are derived from the Latin fluere, which means to flow, to flow. The name of the element fluorine is also derived from it.
In its pure form, Fluorite is colorless, but depending on the trace elements it contains, it can have different colors. The Ancient Greeks and Romans loved Fluorite. They made bowls and dishes in all kinds of colors. Fluorite was so popular that it was even counterfeited to meet the demand! Especially the blue Fluorite, which was found in England, among other places, was incredibly popular.
In China, Fluorite has also been a popular gemstone for centuries to make figurines and utensils. That's because it's a soft rock and so easy to cut and work with. The Chinese considered the green Fluorite beads - just like all other green stones, by the way - as a powerful talisman and amulet. The mineral of the Fluorite beads is said to provide protection against witchcraft and devil arts.
From the mid-eighteenth century, Fluorite was used as a fluorspar in the processing of metal and glass and in the manufacture of various colors of enamel.
