With the holidays just around the corner, perhaps you have considered Fluorite Jewellery as a gift for someone on your list. There is a lot of jewellery from which to choose, and gemstone jewellery is a popular choice for that someone special.
The chances are that you have looked at the different types of jewellery that is available and maybe you have considered a gemstone piece. Amethyst, rubies, sapphires, diamonds, topaz and more are all beautiful choices. But if you are looking for something truly unique and that comes in many different options, maybe you might consider Fluorite jewellery.
Fluorite is a popular gemstone that many people may see but not know what it is. Below we are going to look at some questions people often have about Fluorite jewellery and explore the answers together.
Does Fluorite Come in Many Colours?
Although tourmaline is known as the rainbow storm, Fluorite is also called the world’s most colourful mineral. It comes in many different colours, from colourless and clear to black, almost opaque. Few other stones rival the colours that it comes in.
Quintessentially, the primary colour is purple. However, in Fluorite’s purest form, it’s colourless. Different trace elements are what give the stone its fantastic colour range.
Fluorite’s beauty comes from the range of hues that it offers. Some of the colours are intense and vivid, and others are lifeless and pale. Pink, brown, black and colourless are the rarer colours which Fluorite comes in. red, blue and yellow also are very rare.
Even though generally it comes in the single hues, sometimes you can also find gemstones have multiple, banded colour zones. When expertly cut to highlight the patterns, these are gorgeous.
When you’re choosing a colour of Fluorite, make sure that you’re basing the decision on colour preferences and budget. Generally, the Fluorite with more intense colours are going to be more desirable and therefore more expensive.
How Do You Clean & Care for Your Fluorite Jewellery?
One thing to note is that Fluorite is very soft, with a hardness ranking of just four. Its cleavage is also very distinct, and this is because of its brittle tenacity and the composition’s crystal structure. Because of this, Fluorite can be scratched, chipped, fractured and damaged easily. Even so, you can have your fluorite jewellery for a long time if you take care of it properly.
If your jewellery’s becoming dirty, warm water and mild liquid soap are best. If there’s dirt in spots that are difficult to reach, clean it with a soft brush or cloth. It would help if you never used anything abrasive to clean your fluorite jewellery. It would be best if you also didn’t put it in an ultrasonic cleaner. The reason for this is because the cleaner’s vibrations are going to be too strong and may cause damage.
If possible, you should avoid vigorous activities like running, gardening, swimming or other similar activities while wearing Fluorite Jewellery as it may become damaged. You also shouldn’t expose it to detergents and chemicals, including perfumes, hairspray or cosmetics. If your jewellery accidentally has these chemicals sprayed on it, immediately wipe the jewellery clean.
It would be best if you also store your jewellery separately inside a pouch or jewellery box. Keeping Flourite away from other, harder metals and gemstones will help prevent it from being scratched.
