The great variety of cutting styles exhibited by these fluorite gems is a consequence of many factors, such as the size, shape, and depth of color of the original rough, the ultimate planned use of the gem, and the skill and whim of the gem cutter. Fluorite gems are popular for their great variety of candy-colored pastels, but they are generally too soft and fragile to be used in most jewelry. However, because of the large sizes, affordable prices, and interesting cuts, fluorite gems are a collector’s stone. This selection of fluorite gems is from the United States, Switzerland, Spain, Korea, South Africa, Namibia, England, Colombia, and Tanzania, ranging in weight from 24 to 900 carats.
