We obtained this one-of-a-kind 9.65 inch long Multicolored Kalan Fluorite Chunky Necklace, weighing 12.25 ounces, or 347.3 grams, from a purveyor specializing in authentic Asian artifacts on Park Avenue in New York's legendary Upper East Side. This treasure was originally part of Jane's special collection.
Now the time has come for Jane to release this treasure to a new owner. See some pictures of the necklace on the body further down this page.
The necklace is composed of sixteen chunks of fluorite in the characteristic shape of roughly isometric cubes. The colors of the fluorite cubes range from saturated violet, blue and green to yellow, pink, red and even extremely rare clear colored fluorite. Each chunk is approximately one inch thick.
This fluorite comes from the Kalangui Fluorite Deposit located in Zabaykalsky Krai, Siberia. This famous Russian fluorite deposit is estimated to contain over 6 million tons of ore containing fluorite.
The fluorite cubes are strung together by hand, with small knots separating each stone. The clasp is exceptionally heavy sterling silver. The authenticity of the necklace is provided by a hallmark tag which contains the following information: Kalan, referring to the source of the fluorite, .925, attesting to the purity of the sterling silver clasp, and USA, indicating the jeweler's home country.
Truly a one of a kind mineralogical collector's item, this unique necklace has a very Clan of the Cave Bears prehistoric chic allure, and Jane has found that it's the kind of necklace that is perfect for formal wear yet still suitable for more casual events.
This Kalan Fluorite necklace also has substantial metaphysical interest, providing a soothing yet powerful energy that relaxes the body while energizing the chakra system
Properties of Fluorite
Fluorite, or Calcium Fluoride, is a relatively soft, translucent, richly colored mineral, which is highly fluorescent, with a strong blue-violet color under a black light.
Fluorite often occurs in glassy bands found in a variety of mineral environments. Fluorite is commonly found in metallic hydrothermal deposits associated with lead, silver, galena, sphalerite, or cobalt deposits. Fluorite is often found in hydro-thermal deposits such as areas with hot springs, where porous limestone has been infused with aqueous fluoride.
Fluorite is said by crystal healers to enhance our powers of discernment, and help us reach a balance in relationships. All colors of fluorite are effective for clearing the aura and energy centers and can facilitate a deep state of meditation. All colors of fluorite are used to absorb negative energies in the body, mind and aura, and from the environment around the bearer.
Blue or turquoise fluorite soothes and energizes the throat chakra, while both pink and green fluorite open and energize the heart chakra. Violet fluorite activates the crown chakra. Yellow fluorite energizes the third chakra, increasing our sense of self-confidence and enhancing our ability to project personal power and exert our will in the world. Red fluorite energizes and strengthens the root chakra, helping to ground and center the energy field. Clear Fluorite activates and energizes the entire chakra system and stimulates the flow of prana, or Universal Life Force energy throughout mind, body and auric field.
Fluorite is a relatively soft crystal, with a Mohs hardness of 4, subtantially less than quartz crystal, and will fracture on impact, so it is important to treat your fluorite necklace with tender loving care. It is best not to engage in strenuous physical exercise while wearing this precious necklace.
On an energetic level, because fluorite absorbs negative energy from the bearer's mind, body and auric field, and also from the environment around the bearer, it is important to cleanse and clear fluorite when one has been in crowds, in stressful environments, or when one is doing crystal healing work.
We recommend using methods other than immersion in salt water to do energetic cleansing of fluorite crystals.
Fluorite crystals absorb the energy contained within the bio-energetic field or aura, of the human being using the crystal, and then this energy can be focused, amplified and transmitted utilizing the power of breath and intent, along with specific techniques for transmitting Universal life force energy taught in various spiritual traditions, including shamanic traditions, Reiki healing traditions, yoga, t’ai chi and other energy disciplines.
If you know specific techniques to build up your life force energy, such as power breathing, breath of fire, or meditative techniques, utilize them to build up your internal energy.
Then hold the necklace between the thumb and forefinger of your right hand. Breathe in slowly through the nose to a count of ten if possible, and formulate the clear intent to bond with and to clear and cleanse your crystal ally.
Breathe out slowly and forcefully through the nose, onto the necklace, and visualize your life force energy filling the fluorite stones and expelling the energy previously held within them into the Earth itself, where it will be transmuted and recycled.
Repeat this process three times.
As you do this, thank the fluorite stones for participating in your world and for taking its long journey to your home. Welcome the crystal to your home. Thank Grandmother Earth for this tremendous gift she has given you. Pray to the Divine, your spiritual guides, angels, teachers and the devas and nature spirits living in your vicinity to take part in this cleansing and clearing. Thank them for their participation.
An alternative method for cleansing crystals is to use a sage smudge stick or incense stick. Call upon your Spirit Guides and Teachers, the Divine Source of Creation, and any angels with whom you normally work, and light a candle at your altar. Ask for help in cleansing the necklace with whom you are now working. Light the smudge stick or incense stick.
Holding the necklace in your right hand, place the crystal in the streaming smoke from your burning offering.
Say a prayer, such as, "I call upon the Divine Source of Creation and the Holy Spirit to cleanse this crystal of all unwanted energies that may have accumulated within it during the course of its travels from its home in the Earth to my altar here today."
After you have worked with the fluorite crystal necklace for a while, you'll want to clean it again. You can use a sage smudge stick or incense and make a prayer like this one: "I call upon the Holy Spirit to cleanse this crystal of all unwanted energies accumulated during the course of my work with this crystal." Or you can clear it with Reiki energy or prayer.
We often use crystal pendants for psychic protection, purification and to clarify things of a spiritual nature. See our article on Psychic Self Defense for more information along these lines with many suggestions on how to protect yourself from unwanted energies.

This crystal has been cleaned and charged with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energetic attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing so it will continue to channel and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
