Fluorite's Maintenance Advice:


Fluorite is extremely susceptible to sunlight, some colors fade slower than others, but they all fade under sunlight. The effect also happens under normal halogen light.  Therefore keep Fluorite in a darker part of the home, away from direct sunlight unless it needs to be cleansed and charged.  To cleanse and charge Fluorite, just pop it on a windowsill out of direct sunlight or even on a cloudy day for 10 minutes.  If it doesn't feel like that is enough, you can use reiki or sound too.
