Ah Fluorite, a crystalline beauty that is just a downright happy stone. With purple being my favorite color it’s hard not to love a stone that so often showcases varying hues of it. Though Fluorite is known as a mental stone, each color has additional healing properties. The wide range of colors found in these crystals include purple, blue, green, clear, white, yellow, pink, red and black. Nearly encompassing every color in the rainbow, how could you not love this prismatic mineral?

As you can see in the photo that I’ve included here, the pieces that I have range in colors from purple, to blue, to green. Most are known as Rainbow Fluorite because they contain more than one color. The Fluorite in the lower center of the picture is my newest addition, its growth pattern is cubic and it has numerous phantoms within its cubes.

Fluorite is known for aiding in mental clarity by removing any mental clutter, and bringing ideas to the forefront, allowing you to clearly see a path to fruition. Purple Fluorite is known to enhance mental acuity and purifying the mind. Assisting in psychic clarity, place Blue Fluorite on your third eye during meditation. Green Fluorite works well with the heart chakra, aiding in healing the heart of past traumas and balancing the heart and mind to ensure that both are aligned on the same path.

When I have a lot of projects going on at once, and start to feel a bit overwhelmed, I will often grab one of my Fluorite pieces to help me regain focus. It’s such a proficient organizational stone that I would be lost without it. Whether you’re trying to get things done at the office or projects around your home, or maybe you just feel like you need to center yourself, Fluorite is a beneficial mineral to have in your crystal arsenal.

Ten “Stress Stones”


Having a cluster of Amethyst at hand is good for keeping negative energy away. Amethyst helps you think and act at your clearest. Wear an Amethyst pendant continuously for migraine prevention, tension headaches, and alleviating arthritic pain.

Also known as the “Success Stone”. Citrine encourages a bright outlook and promotes happiness. It attracts wealth and joy. It can help stabilize emotions and soothe family problems. Citrine is also good for improving stress-related digestive problems.
Clear Quartz

Quartz is an excellent general physical system fortifier and protector. It increases mental clarity. Hold a clear crystal at your solar plexus and breath evenly for several minutes to calm your emotions, to relax the body, to clear the mind, and to refresh your energy. Stare into the crystal to clear writer’s block and to increase creativity.

Fluorite is a stone to unblock stuck energies. For digestive systems problems use the yellow/green color combination. For pains in the skeletal and muscular system, use the blue/white color combination. For head area complaints, use the purple/clear combination. For asthma, wear the green colored Fluorite. To help congested mental thoughts, use a purple cluster in your work area, or position a cluster at your crown chakra while sleeping.

Garnet is an energy revitalizer. Excellent for strengthening the base chakra. It promotes sexual energy (for your self and partner). It helps increase circulation to the legs and pelvic area. It reduces menstrual pain when held or taped over the ovaries and uterus. Garnet can increase sexual stimulation and fertility, too.


Dubbed, “The Anti-Stress Stone”. Hematite reflects back negative energies to the sender (so you don’t end up taking them on yourself). Hematite dissolves the issues when one meets with confrontation. Tape a small piece over the leg and back areas to reduce pain and to increase electromagnetic circulation. Hematite helps balance the meridians.

Malachite is excellent for Type A personalities and for those prone to heart disease and stresses to internal organs. It helps to detoxify the liver and to increase blood circulation. Malachite is excellent for breaking up old energy patterns. Use it with Rose Quartz to soften the effects of a broken heart! Due to the possibly toxic copper content of this stone, keep Malachite away from pets and children, and do not wear it against the skin for long periods of time. This stone is for external use only.
Rose Quartz

“The Love Stone” – Rose Quartz is very protective and soothing for many issues. Place a large chunk of the stone at your Heart Center for 15 minutes to relax after a stressful day. Rose Quartz helps to unblock anxiety and to promote healing of private emotional issues. It allows one to become more receptive and open to challenges.
Smokey Quartz

Smokey Quartz is an excellent stabilizer for mood swings. It helps ground feelings of depression, and both absorbs and transmutes negativity. This stone is best worn at the solar plexus, the seat of the emotions. Smokey Quartz is excellent for PMS and cranky persons; and good for persons imbalanced due to extreme stress and burn-out. It provides a protective field for recovery.

“A Stone of Protection” – Turquoise is an excellent toner for all systems of the body. It helps prevent organs from absorbing toxins and breaking down. Wear this stone at the throat to strengthen your will and to communicate effectively. It helps to sweeten the voice and speak your truth. Turquoise helps reduce premature aging.
