Fabulous Fluorite Fantasy From Laura Perin

We just received, hot off the presses, Laura J. Perin's newest addition to her Impressionist Collection, "Fluorite Fantasy." It is beautiful!

It's all done up in shades of purple and teal, using a variety of stitches. We just know you're going to love this one.

If you're like us, you may be wondering just what is this fluorite? Is it related to the fluoride we use to protect our teeth? Inquiring minds want to know. So I looked it up and found out some interesting things about this mineral composed of calcium fluoride.

Fluorite is said to absorb and neutralize negative vibrations. It is also known as the "Genius Stone," increasing concentration and helping in decision-making. I do believe I should carry one of these around with me at all times.

The ancient Egyptians used fluorite to carve statues and scarabs, and the Chinese have used it in carvings for over 300 years. I would love to see some of these!

We're offering "Fluorite Fantasy" as a complete kit as well, so fly on over to the Catalog to pre-order one now. Be the first in your stitching group to have this gorgeous design!
