Formation: The Erongo region of Namibia is a very well-known modern locality for high quality fluorite, tourmaline, beryl, and other related minerals. They often form aesthetic combination specimens that have a distinctive look. Fluorite is a halide mineral which forms in the isometric system, and schorl (black tourmaline) is the iron-rich black variety of the tourmaline group, a diverse family of silicate minerals.Healing Properties: Fluorite is often called the "psychic vacuum cleaner", and is believed to clear negative energy from one's surroundings. It is also a stone of mental focus and clarity--well suited for students and teachers. Green fluorite in particular is believed to open the heart chakra, providing emotional healing and cleansing trauma from the emotional body. Schorl (Black tourmaline) is connected to grounding, protection, and transmutation of negativity.
