Large Blue Flourite - How to clean

0 votes
We have a large piece of blue fluorite.It has lost it's lustre and is very dusty. It has also lost some of it's bright blue colour.

1. What is the best way to clean it.

2. Is it usual for it to loose some of it's bright blue colouration?

Thank You

Neil

Use Warm water and a mild soap and clean with a clean rag. Crystal is fragile and may react with chemicals

Fluorite should be durable when washed with soap and water. Though fluorite from some localities can lose color upon prolonged exposure to light.
