Why Fluorite Comes in Different Colors? With Examples

Fluorite forms in hydrothermal veins in the Earth's crust and in cavities in sedimentary rocks Over the centuries these fissures are constantly opening and closing sometimes cutting off the fluids needed for fluorite to form It's the subtle changes in the chemistry of these fluids that causes colour zoning in the crystals as they grow

Purple rocks which may range in hue from blue to violet get their color from the minerals those rocks contain Although fairly rare you can find purple blue or violet minerals in these four types of rocks ordered from most to least common

In general rocks are of three types igneous sedimentary and metamorphic Even though rocks do not have a specific physical composition like minerals there is a science of rocks as well called petrology The study of rocks is essential for understanding the formation of the earth

Green and greenish rocks get their color from minerals that contain iron or chromium and sometimes manganese By studying a material's grain color and texture you can easily identify the presence of one of the minerals below Be sure to examine your sample on a clean surface and pay close attention to the material's luster and hardness

Fluorite Treatments The blue to deep blue to black color seen in some fluorites is derived from a color center the F-center This involves an electron-center precursor and a missing fluorine atom in the fluorite CaF 2 An electron liberated by irradiation or other processes (Nassau 1983) from a hole-center precursor can be trapped at the fluorine vacancy to become the electron color-center
