Fascinating and beautiful fluorite is the halide mineral calcium fluoride and comes in an astonishing array of rainbow colors. Occurring in a crystalline form in places around the world, the stone has been used decoratively since ancient times. Ancient Roman wine vessels were often carved from fluorite. Rainbow or banded fluorite is particularly stunning and is found in large amounts at Castleton, England.
Deep red garnet is derived from a number of minerals, including pyrope and almandine. Popularized in Bohemia in the Czech Republic, garnet has been used in decoration and jewelry across Europe for many years. Its color is generally a dark burgundy, sometimes with a hint of orange, pink, or purple.
