Fluorite is one of our most popular minerals, and you can see why here.
It has that lovely flowing quality, so you won't be surprised that fluorite derives from the Latin noun fluo meaning a flow of water.
Fluorite has also been called "the most colourful mineral in the world" with the typical colour combinations being the purples, blues and greens you see here.
In 1852, fluorite gave its name to the phenomenon of fluorescence, and, if you really want to know, fluorite is used as a flux for smelting glass and enamels - though we prefer it used for scarves.
While the retail price of our large square scarves is now £245, we have kept the website price below £100 for the time being, so the saving is now a remarkable £150.
