Green Fluorite Pendant

 

 

Fascinating green fluorite pendant crafted in a timeless sterling silver setting.

Photographing highly translucent minerals can be tricky because under studio lighting it can be difficult to capture the exact colour of the stone because it changes depending on the amount of light that's present and the angle from which the photograph was taken.  To describe this green fluorite cabochon as having a minty green colour would be pretty accurate and with it being translucent, you can look deep inside a material that was created over millions of years.

Fluorite is a fragile stone which must be handled with care and if knocked or dropped it will fracture or worse still, shatter completely.  Stones have a vitreous lustre which describes the way the surface of the mineral interacts with light and stones with this type of lustre are sometimes described as having a glassy appearance or texture.  On Mohs scale of mineral hardness fluorite grades 4 and it is in fact the index mineral for this level of hardness.

Fluorite occurs in many different colours and when several colours are present together in layers or zones, the stone is usually referred to as rainbow fluorite.
