The word fluorescent was derived from fluorite since specimens of fluorite were some of the first fluorescent specimens ever studied. Fluorite is well known and prized for its glassy luster and rich variety of colours.
Most specimens of fluorite have a single colour, but a significant percentage of fluorites have multiple colours and the colours are arranged in bands that correspond to the shape of the crystals. In other words, the typical habit of fluorite is a cube and the colour zones are often in a cubic arrangement. The effect is similar to phantomed crystals, that appear to have crystals within crystals that are of differing colours. A fluorite crystal could have a clear outer zone allowing a cube of purple fluorite to be seen inside. Sometimes the less common habits such as a coloured octahedron are seen inside of a colorless cube. One crystal of fluorite could potentially have four or five different colour zones or bands.
