Flint: Protection, healing, divination

Fluorite: Crystal healers consider Fluorite one of Nature’s most powerful mental healers. Those who have experienced the power of Fluorite have labeled it the Genius Stone. To them it has the ability to influence the activities that occur on the mental plane of consciousness and amplifies, focuses, expands and creates new pathways for the mind. Mental healers also credit Fluorite with connecting a person’s being on the mental and spiritual plane. This allows it to increase abilities of concentration, discernment of truth and clear decision-making. Other properties include bringing order to mental chaos, increasing objectivity, enhancing creativity, curing mental disorders, easing meditation and freeing one from bad habits.

The many colors of Fluorite, according to healers, have different mental healing specialties. Green can energize and still the heart and mind. Blue for inner peace. Purple is for focus and helping to get one out of a mental rut. Yellow is for comprehension and group communication and dynamics. White is for creating pathways between the individual and universal spirit.

Though primarily recognized as a mental healer, crystal healers also consider Fluorite a good physical healer, protecting one from infection by purification of the body, cleansing the spirit and eliminating almost any virus or bacteria. They also prescribe it for women in need of balancing their hormones. Because of its chemical makeup, they believe it can help with bones and teeth.

Healers specializing in using crystal power on pets recommend Fluorite for teeth, ear, nose and throat, digestion, respiratory, lymph node, bones, sleep, and anxious maladies.

Fluorite Green: Green Fluorite is about healing on all levels. This stone allows us to mentally grasp our heart based issues and then begin to heal them. Green is the color of growth and healing. Use this stone as a bridge to allow personal growth to happen in your life. It is very calming, but at the same time it gives us the courage needed to expand our ideas and awareness. This is a very important stone to have in your healing kit.

Fluorite Octahedral: Fluorite Octahedrons is used to help us dissolve mental blocks, narrow mindedness, and thought constricting patterns. I feel it helps us to get through the 'I can't do it' stage of getting our ideas out into the open very quickly. Sometimes we are stuck in self defeating patterns and need that extra boost to make us realize that we really can do what we set our mind on. Fluorite Octahedrons work to get us through these difficult times by reminding us that we are important and having negative thoughts about ourselves is not the way to a full and happy life. Physically, fluorite octahedrons are used to heal skin, bones and regenerate cell tissue. It may also help those with arthritis (inflammation of the joints.)

Fluorite Purple:Aids ability to meditate, increases psychic development, brings spiritual peace and wholeness. As we develop spiritually, we come to a place in our journey where we need to make a commitment; Fluorite will help you to decide if you are indeed ready to make this important commitment. For some, purple fluorite will help them to begin channeling information that is crucial to further their spiritual development.

FluoriteYttrium: Yttrium Fluorite is an unusual, rare and beautiful form of purple Fluorite from Mexico. It is unusual in the fact that it does not cleave as other varieties of Fluorite and is extremely dense. Fluorite is known for being a mental body stone, but Yttrium is very different in the fact that it is attached to the physical world. While this may seem an unusual property for a mentally orientated mineral, it does serve an important function. Many people are too mentally oriented, they are thinkers, philosophers and dreamers who lack the discipline or groundedness to bring their ideas into reality. Yttrium Fluorite assists in grounding the ideas of these thinkers by manifesting those plans--making things happen. Another way the energies of this stone maybe utilized is by bringing down mental concepts to a level more readily understood by the average person. Minerals such as Selenite give us access into higher wisdom, Calcite can bridge the gap between that reality and our own, but a mineral such as Yttrium Fluorite will bring that information down through the physical plane to a level more easily understood.
