Rainbow Fluorite is known to not only increase intuition and bring you closer to human/universal consciousness, Fluorite is also a great addition to any work space because it heightens mental abilities, helps with processing information, and can bring mental clarity and stability in otherwise chaotic circumstances.

  • Encourages innovation, organization and understanding
  • Spiritual awareness
  • Increases intuition
  • Brings mental clarity and stability
  • Brings inner peace

  • Brings common sense to psychic intuitions
  • Known as a stone for communication
  • Grounding and harmonizing
