Fluorite is a mineral found primarily in South Africa, Mexico, and China. It derives its name from the Latin noun “fluo”, which means “stream”. Fluorite can have some very unique color patterns, so these handmade rainbow fluorite plugs are sure to be attention grabbing with their eye-catching shine. The larger their size, the more flash you’ll get!
Fluorite comes in a wide variety of colors, thereby earning itself the title “the most colorful mineral in the world”. The stone is usually purple, blue, green, yellow, or clear, but can in rarer instances features white, black, pink, red, and/or brown bands. Colors are usually banded across the stone, which means your plugs will likely be multicolored. Because of the mineral’s attractive nature, it has been used for both lapidary and ornamental intentions. Some ancient peoples, such as the Romans, used to carve designs into fluorite, creating statues and other decorative pieces. The stone has also been long used for jewelry, despite the fact that it is rather soft.
