Last night, a dear friend gave me the most marvelous gift ever! And unbeknownst to her, I’d been wanting one for awhile, though the ones I’d looked at up to now were quartz. She told me this one was labradorite, but both my daughter and I thought it was Fluorite, and when I looked it up on the internet, found that it did look more like Fluorite, which has some amazing properties!
Fluorite Gemstone meaning
Formerly called fluorspar, fluorite has a wide range of colors
including yellow, blue, pink purple and green. It is an interesting and
beautiful stone because often more than one color occurs in a single
stone. The ancient Egyptians used flourite to carve statues and scarabs,
the Chinese have used it in carvings for over 300 years. In the 18th
century, fluorite was powdered in water to relieve the symptoms of
Fluorite is said to absorb and neutralize negative
vibrations. It makes one more receptive to the vibrations of other
stones. Fluorite should be kept in every room of the home. Fluorite is
known as the “Genius Stone”.
- increases concentration
- helps in decision-making
Healing properties of Fluorite
Fluorite may be used with other stones. It helps to open the
way for the power of other stones to be effective. It can be used as a
meditation stone to help energize the body and raise the power of
Healers use it to help with ulcers as well as the
respiratory tract by stimulating cell regeneration in these areas. It
fortifies bones, improves arthritic or other joint ailments. It can be
laid directly on the body.
Pretty cool, I thought! But that’s not even the beginning! I took the stone out while talking to my daughter, and just held it in my hand, warming it with my body. I set it down for a few minutes while I gathered water and other things to do a meditation. When I picked it back up, the darned thing was HOT!!! Once I held it in my hand again, it cooled back down to my body temperature.
So, did I charge the stone, or was it unhappy to be away from me for even a few minutes? Has it attuned to me?
I especially love this stone, and, in fact, could not have chosen better myself, because it has some cracks and cloudy spots some might call flaws, but which I call character.
When I shone my desk lamp on the heart stone, I noticed a bright, almost emerald green patch inside the stone, at the bottom of one of the curves at the top of the heart. On the opposite side of the curve is a vein of less intense green. The top of the heart is almost clear so that you can look down inside the heart to see veining and what appears to be crystalline pieces on top of stone.
Both sides of the heart appear to have cracks. On one side, it runs diagonally from top left to bottom right. On the other side, it bisects the heart from left to right, near the bottom. This crack has a solid, white colored spot near the far right side.
On the side with the diagonal crack, there is what appears to be a heart within a heart. On the right side, is a very clear, green vein which forms the top loop of the heart. Inside the green vein, the rest of the heart forms in deep, purple, set slightly off-center, to the left side of the heart.
Although the heart stone is primarily purple, there are definite veins and patches of green, from the subtlest to the most intense. There are crystalline sections which are nearly clear, and a couple of patches of cloudy white, one at the top and one near the bottom.
All in all, I will spend a lot of time both studying and connecting with this stone, as it appears to me that it has come into my life for a very definite reason. The fact that I have been looking at them, but never chose one for myself is, I believe, significant. The fact that this, particular friend gave it to me is also significant. I tease her and her husband for being yentas but they are so filled with love and have a very strong, abiding marriage and connection with each other.
Just the other night, she tried to fix me up with a new guy who’s been coming into the club where we dance. I learned yesterday that he’s just finalizing a divorce and will be going on the line dance cruise. OK, so he is definitely easy on the eyes. But I have been keeping my distance as I tend to be rather clumsy when I feel even the slightest attraction. But I appreciate the fact that he’s really making an effort to learn to dance.
The dance world is a crazy place, though. There are more women than men who love to dance on a regular basis so when new man shows up with a desire to dance, it is rarely very long, if he’s at all inclined, before one of those women hooks up with him. Some of them just talk to him and listen. Others are more aggressive. It depends a lot on the man and what he’s receptive to. Rarely do I notice that the man actually seeks out a particular woman, but then, I admit I don’t watch too closely. What I typically notice is that a new man is learning the dances. The next thing I usually notice is that he’s found a lady friend. What happens in the middle is a complete mystery to me!
However (and this is a biggie!), I really did seem to feel his energy last night. OK, it could have been my imagination, wishful thinking or indigestion, but I really felt especially sparkly last night.
Clearly, if it is time for me to add a dimension to my life, I will be able to do what’s necessary to move things into alignment. Time will definitely tell.
My gratitudes tonight are:
1. I am grateful for friends who know what I need.
2. I am grateful for all of the love and affection and laughter I am enjoying.
3. I am grateful that I’m done wrapping for another year.
4. I am grateful that I only have a few more things to clean up to clear the Christmas dust away.
5. I am grateful for the upgrade my adopted son did to my computers (even if I lost VPN temporarily due to my own mistake!)
Love and light.
