Fluorite comes in every color imaginable. Pure Fluorite is colorless. The
colors found in fluorite are caused by mineral impurities, which are normally
hydrocarbons. The hydrocarbons (and the coloring) can be removed from a
specimen by heating. Collectors often procure a vibrant colored piece and
then display it in bright sunlight. The heating from the sun can cause your
specimen to lose its brilliant color if left in direct sunlight too long.

Fluorite is one of the more famous fluorescent minerals.
Many specimens strongly fluoresce, in a great variation of
color. Rogerly Mine in Weardale England is a well known
producer of super fluorescent specimens. The word
"fluorescent" is derived from the mineral Fluorite. The name
of the element fluorine is also derived from Fluorite. Fluorite
is soft and is not usable as a gemstone although their
natural beauty can rival most natural gemstones. Fluorite
comes from the root word fluo meaning “to flow”  Fluorite is
used in making flux for steelworking

The Rogerley Mine is located in the historic Weardale mining District of Northern England. First discovered by Lindsay Greenbank and Mike
Sutcliffe in the early 1970's, it is to date, the only mine in all of Britian to be worked on a commercial scale solely for the recovery of crystallized
mineral specimens.

Since the summer of 1999, UK Mining Ventures has operated the Rogerley Mine on a seasonal basis, producing many fine, well crystallized
specimens of green fluorite.
