Fluorite is a transparent mineral that comes in a variety of different colors, and exhibits florescence under ultraviolet light. Nikon and Kodak have used fluorite to make ultraviolet camera lenses that can capture images in outer space. Because of Fluorites high calcium content it is a valuable component in producing fluoride products such as toothpastes for strengthening teeth.
It is recommended that you remove your jewelry prior to sleeping, bathing, exercising, or cleaning with chemicals. Each piece has been sealed with a non-toxic jewelry lacquer. You may gently clean your piece with mild soap and water but never use chemicals or other types of cleaners because this can damage the gemstones and remove the patina on the piece. Jewelry should be stored away from natural sunlight and heat in a protective jewelry box (like the one provided).
