Gemology

A fire agate in real life

  • Fire Agate is only found in certain areas of central and northern Mexico and the southwestern United States (New Mexico, Arizona and California).
  • Fire agates have beautiful iridescent rainbow colors, similar to opal.
  • Fire Agate has a hardness between 5 and 7 on the Mohs scale.
  • The vibrant iridescent rainbow colors found within fire agates, created by the Schiller effect as found in mother-of-pearl, is caused by the alternating silica and iron oxide layers which diffract and allow light to pass and form an interference of colors within the microstructure layering of the stone causing the fire effect for which it is named.

Fluorite in real life.

Gemstone Information
  • As a lesser-known gemstone, fluorite has not gained much fame or legend, other than being known as the most colorful mineral in the world.
  • The word 'fluorite', derived from the Latin verb 'to flow', refers to fluorite's use as a flux in steel and aluminum processing.
  • It was originally named 'fluorspar' by miners and is still called fluorspar to this day. Fluorite is also used as a source of fluorine for fluorinated water.
  • Many people believe fluorite has a calming effect on the body.
  • During the eighteenth century, it was ground into powder and mixed with water to treat kidney disease.
  • Ancient Romans believed that drinking alcoholic beverages out of vessels carved from fluorite would help prevent drunkenness, which is similar to the beliefs attached to amethyst.
  • Fluorite is used to lower the melting point in aluminum. Its also used in jewelry and microscope lenses.
  • It has a really soft texture, which is good for carving with.
    • Along with that, its also ceramic-like so its used in a lot of cookware.
  • Surprisingly, pure fluorite is colorless and often found in limestone.

Gemstones

Fluorite has three gemstones. They are all green, pink and purple in color. One is a triangle shape with a triangular facet. One is round and unfaceted. The third is a teardrop shape.

Gemstone Information
  • Jasper is the zodiacal stone for Aries, Leo, Virgo, and Scorpio. It is a planetary stone for Mars and is associated with the element of fire, as well as being a secondary birthstone of March.
  • Jasper often represents protection, nurturing, relaxation, and so on.
    • This is ironic, due to Jasper's cruel and aggressive nature. However, it can also represent fire, a nod to her fiery temper.
  • Jasper is a variety of quartz with a chemical composition composed primarily of silicon dioxide.
    • Up to 20% percent of fine, dense jasper can be composed of foreign materials, typically hematite, pyrolusite, clay, or calcite.
    • Jasper has a microcrystalline structure which means its trigonal crystals can only be seen under high magnification.
  • Jasper comes in all colors, mostly striped, spotted, or flamed.
    • Jasper herself has multiple markings across her body, a reference to this.
    • A variety of trade names specify colors, appearance, or composition. There is no recommendation for color, although red, caused by traces of iron oxide, is one of the most common colors.
    • Brown and yellow are also commonly occurring colors for Jasper.
  • The name "Jasper" is derived from the Greek word for "spotted stone", referring to its typical multicolored, striped, spotted, or flamed appearance.
