Rainbow fluorite is a variety of fluorite (also referred to as "fluorspar"), which is actually a type of mineral. As crystal expert and author of CRYSTAL365 and Crystal Muse Heather Askinosie says "It has a multitude of colours ranging from white to purple to green, and every crystal has its own storyline and its own color vibrational frequency."
Varieties of fluorite, including rainbow, can be found all over the world, from Russia to China to South Africa, as well as in parts of the United States.
According to Yulia Van Doren, author of Crystals: The Modern Guide to Crystal Healing and founder of Goldirocks, people have been working with the colourful stone for centuries. (It's even thought to have been given the nickname "Genius Stone" by medieval alchemists.)
Rainbow fluorite properties
The key to working with rainbow fluorite, or any crystal, for that matter, is to programme it with an intention. That way, you'll be reminded of your goal every time you look at the stone and can then take action to bring it to life.
Fluorite is thought to be a particularly good crystal for assisting with focus, clear thinking, and creative inspiration. "Its swirling bands of greens, purples, and blues have a calming effect on both mind and body," Van Doren adds. She considers it a great earth ally to keep on hand when you're working, studying, or just hoping to have a chill but productive day.
Askinosie adds that this crystal can also be used to hold intentions like inner harmony, peace, and serenity.
Rainbow fluorite benefits:
• Supports productivity
• Supports inner harmony
• Helps tap into creativity and intuition
How to use it:
1. Keep it on your desk
Van Doren notes that rainbow fluorite is an excellent "get-to-work" crystal for when you want to focus or tap into your intellect. As such, she recommends "keeping rainbow fluorite on your work desk, or somewhere else in your workspace where you will see it regularly." Every time you do, let it be a reminder of your intention to get to work.
2. Carry it around with you
When you're out and about, keeping some rainbow fluorite on hand can help you stay steady. Van Doren recommends carrying a tumble stone of rainbow fluorite around with you as a reminder to stay calm and carry on. These small, smooth stones are compact enough to tuck into your pocket, bra, or bag.
3. Use it when you need to concentrate
Have a big presentation coming up? Anticipating a difficult conversation? Van Doren says working with rainbow fluorite can help you go into it with a clear and calm mind.
Hold the stone in your hand as you prepare for the task. As you do, visualise yourself getting through it with confidence and ease, and direct some of that positive energy into your rainbow fluorite. Then, take the stone into the presentation or conversation as a pre-charged good luck charm.
4. Use it to relax before bed
And lastly, while rainbow fluorite can be great for productivity and focus, it's ultimately a calming stone that can help you remember to relax. So, Askinosie explains, it's a great crystal to keep in your bedroom.
Hold it in your hand or put it over your chest as you do some deep breathing to unwind before bed.
