This can be seen to be a fluorite by the flowing bands of colour - and the name comes from the Latin for flow.
Pure fluorite is colourless and transparent, so used to make lenses for microscopes and telescopes.
However, fluorite comes in a wide range of colours, and is sometimes called ‘the most colourful mineral in the world’, although the most common colours are purple, blue, green and yellow,
In 1852, fluorite gave its name to the phenomenon of fluorescence, which is prominent in fluorites under ultraviolet light.
We've chosen a new framing and toning of this design, and love it for its variety of colours and banded structure that makes it both distinctive and beautiful.
