Pure Fluorite is actually white or colorless, but trace minerals give it many colors. Fluorite is transparent in most cases. The word “flourescent” is derived from flourite. Flourescence is the property of emitting light that has been absorbed previously–in essence, glowing. Generally minerals that are flourescent absorb ultra-violet light and then emit visible light, therefore the effect can only be seen by shining a UV light (black light) on them. Not all flourite is flourescent. Pieces harvested side by side from the same site can respond differently to black light–the effect depends on the exact mineral makeup of each specimen. Fluorite is found in many parts of the world including Germany, Austria, Switzerland, England, Norway, Mexico, Canada (Ontario), and the U.S. The largest producer of fluorite in the U.S. is Illinois, and is in fact their state mineral. Fluorite is also found in Missouri, Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico, Kentucky, Arizona, Ohio, New Hampshire, New York and Texas.
