Lavender Fluorite: The Complete Guide
Lavender fluorite is a stone that is still relatively new to the market (usually overcast by more popular fluorite stones like purple fluorite), but it quickly became a favorite among crystal collectors and healers.
Available in beautiful shades of light purple and lavender and is known for its many benefits, if you’re unsure whether this crystal deserves a spot in your life, this guide will discuss everything you need to know!
An Introduction To Lavender Fluorite
Lavender Fluorite is a beautiful crystal that features vibrant streaks of light purple and lavender shades, which gives this fluorite its name.
This unique crystal is formed when fluorite deposits are combined with other minerals, such as quartz or calcite. The result is a stunning crystal with various colors and patterns, usually consisting of purples, violets, and greens.
Interestingly, the stone only comes from Mexico, and is formed because about 20% of the calcium in the crystal has been replaced with Yttrium, a rare element that helps to give this stone its unique color.
Lavender Fluorite Metaphysical And Spiritual Properties
Lavender Fluorite is a highly protective stone and is known for its ability to cleanse and purify the aura.
It is also said to be helpful in clearing negative energy from the environment. It’s a proactive crystal, working in both the metaphysical and physical.
When you take the time to understand this crystal, to really tune into what it is, the energy it emits, and what it has to offer, you can find a connection to the spiritual world that you simply don’t get with other stones.
In terms of physical change, this crystal is fantastic at promoting calmness and peace and improving memory and concentration. Additionally, Lavender Fluorite is known to boost the immune system and promote healing.
What Chakras Does Lavender Fluorite Connect With?
Lavender Fluorite is connected with the Third Eye and Crown Chakras. The Third Eye Chakra is associated with intuition, insight, and wisdom.
The Crown Chakra is associated with spirituality, connection to the higher self, and enlightenment.
Engaging in a spiritual practice or ritual with Lavender Fluorite can be a great way to stimulate your connection to these chakras, especially if you’re seeking guidance or answers to questions.
For example, in my own practice, I like to meditate with Lavender Fluorite when I am working through a problem or seeking clarity on a situation.
I hold the crystal in my hand and focus on my breath, asking my question or stating my intention out loud. Then, I simply let go and allowed the answers to come to me.
These could be questions like, “What do I need to know about this situation?” or “What is the best course of action for me to take?”.
Of course, you can also use Lavender Fluorite in other ways, such as placing it on your Third Eye or Crown Chakra during meditation or using it in crystal grids (see also ‘What Are Crystal Grids‘). It’s basically a process of using this crystal intentionally where you can see the benefits in your life.
How To Use Lavender Fluorite
There are many ways to use Lavender Fluorite in your daily life. One of the most popular ways is to simply carry a piece of the crystal with you or keep it in your pocket.
You can also place Lavender Fluorite in your workspace or near your computer to help improve concentration and memory.
If you’re seeking a more hands-on approach, you can use Lavender Fluorite in meditation or crystal healing.
Hold the crystal in your hand and focus on your breath. You may also want to place the crystal on your body or in specific areas that need healing.
Lavender Fluorite is one of those crystals you can either have within your home and leave it to do its thing, or you can proactively engage with it during your day-to-day life.
To do this, you can set the intention that you want to work with the crystal on a specific issue or goal (see also ‘How To Set Intentions With The Use Of Crystals‘). This could be done during a meditation or journaling session.
You won’t typically see Lavender Fluorite used in jewelry but rather in larger pieces that can be placed around the home.
This is because the crystal works best when it’s not restricted and can emit its energy more freely when it’s in a larger space. Take advantage of this and get the most out of your crystal by using it in this way.
You can use Lavender Fluorite for aura work since most fluorite crystals in this family can absorb negative energy and dissolve it into positive energy, as this Lavender crystal does.
However, being a gentle stone, it doesn’t do this as effectively as some of the other more potent cleansers. Yet, it can still be used in a larger crystal setup or individually for gentle effects in this line of thinking.
How To Care For Your Lavender Fluorite
Lavender Fluorite is a delicate crystal, so it is important to take care of it properly. If not, you risk damaging the crystal and diminishing its power.
Avoid exposing the crystal to direct sunlight or harsh chemicals. When cleaning your Lavender Fluorite, use only mild soap and water, or ideally give it a salt bath (leave it submerged in a bowl of salt water overnight).
Also, avoid dropping or knocking it against hard surfaces, as this can cause the crystal to chip or break, again dampening its power. I find the energy surrounding carelessness in this way, at least in my own experiences, to be very telling.
To cleanse and recharge your crystal, place it in a bowl of cool water overnight or by using sage smoke or incense.
You can also place your Lavender Fluorite in a room that gets plenty of natural sunlight (not direct, however).
Also, much like with other crystals, you can cleanse it by leaving it exposed to unfiltered moonlight during a full moon (not behind a window, for example) and cleansing it by leaving it in the presence of other cleansing-focused crystals.
Lavender Fluorite is a beautiful crystal with many benefits. We hope this guide has helped you learn more about this amazing stone, and you’ll recognize just how beautiful a companion it can be within a spiritual practice and how it truly does deserve a place by your side.
