Fluorite an important industrial mineral composed of calcium and fluorine (CaF2). It is used in a wide variety of chemical, metallurgical, and ceramic processes. Specimens with exceptional clarity and color are cut into gems or used to make ornamental objects.
It is deposited in veins by hydro-thermal processes. In these rocks it often occurs as a gangue mineral associated with metallic ores. Fluorite is also found in the fractures and cavities of some limestones and dolomites. It is a very common rock-forming mineral, found in many parts of the world. In the mining industry, fluorite is often called “fluorspar.”
Howlite is a borate mineral found in evaporative deposits. It was discovered near Windsor, Nova Scotia in 1868 by Henry How (1828–1879), a Canadian chemist, geologist, and mineralogist. How was alerted to the unknown mineral by miners in a gypsum quarry, who found it to be a nuisance. He called the new mineral silico-boro-calcite; it was given the name howlite by James Dwight Dana shortly thereafter.
CARE AND CLEANING
As with all jewelry, avoid spraying with perfumes, or coming into direct contact with lotions or make-ups. Remove jewelry before bathing or swimming. If the necklace needs to be cleaned, gently wipe it off with a baby wipe and use a Q-tip for the small crevices. Allow to dry completely before wearing. If your jewelry tarnishes, clean it with some lemon juice and a toothbrush, and dry with a paper towel.
Copper jewelry WILL change colors over time, also known as oxidation. I do not seal my copper jewelry, as some people feel that there are medicinal benefits to having copper touch their skin. I leave it up to the consumer to choose what’s best for them and their bodies. Occasionally, copper jewelry will turn your skin green. It is not harmful to you, and washes off easily.
