Personal Experience with Fluorite

I have recommended many a scattered brain to use Fluorite on their desks to help focus on their tasks at hand. Luckily, I don't have this problem and am able to focus once I break into the work mode. Nevertheless, I am drawn to the translucent rainbow colors of Fluorite, especially the darker ones like the striped purple Fluorite heart as pictured above!

For me, holding Fluorite is like an electrical charge of alignment, readying my thoughts to point in the same direction. Wearing Rainbow Fluorite jewelry adds that much needed array of shiny colors into my wardrobe.
