What kind of rock is this?
Wait... are you saying your a rock?
No. I'm a mineral! We just went over this.
Its Fluorite! And I'm not a rock, I'm a mineral!
What is flourite anyway?
Fluorite is a mineral with a chemical composition of CaF2. It is one of the minerals classified into the Halides group.
Yup. Fluorite also has cleavage, meaning it breaks in straight smooth lines. Fluorite has a hardness of 4 on the Moh's hardness scale, and both Diamonds and Turquoise are harder than it. Copper and Sulfur are softer than fluorite.
Whoa! It kind of looks like glass. What does that mean?
Can Fluorite only be purple?
Nope! It can be many more colors! Follow me and I'll show you.
Well, when a mineral looks glass it is called being viterous, and fluorite is, its is also non metallic, so it doesn't look like a metal would.
