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.
