Fluorite crystals are usually translucent and come in shades of white, brown, blue, yellow, purple, red or are colorless. Fluorite is classified as a Halide (Calcium Fluoride) and is insoluble in water, hydrochloric acid, and nitric acid. It has perfect octahedral cleavage, which is why you so often see octahedrons of fluorite sold in various New Age stores. Fluorite naturally occurs in cubes, octahedrons, and dodecahedrons.
This stone generally has an affinity with the sign Pisces, and purple fluorite in particular is associated with the sign Sagittarius. Fluorite seems to work with the conscious mind. It can help to straighten your thoughts, and reduce emotional involvement in a situation in order to gain a more accurate perspective. It is useful for channeling the intuitive power of the mind into physical activity. Combined with calcite and pyrite, it is useful for changing old mental patterns or consciously developing psychic abilities. Fluorite aids in fighting mental disorder and gaining spiritual awakening. It can help you become more aware of the higher levels of reality and can anchor and free you from over-stimulation on the psychic plane. Using fluorite can allow you to see the reality behind the illusion, the eternal in the transitory, and the truth behind the confusion.

Although fluorite clusters can be used in healing layouts, they are more valuable for their physical presence in working areas (especially in laboratories or places of study and research). Their presence reminds the mind to stay focused, organized, clear and in-tune. They are for anyone who works under pressure and wants to keep the mind clear and calm.
Fluorite octahedrons are eight-sided structures which resemble two pyramids fused at the bases. This dual pyramid effect symbolizes the energies of the higher subtle realms being integrated into the physical plane. For this reason, the octahedrons are used in crystal healing layouts. The pyramid form of fluorite is very useful for meditations.
