Fluorite questions

Hi. I came across a bin of fluorite at the lfs this past weekend. It was $1.29 per pound. First of all, is this a good price? Could it be found cheaper at Home Depot, and if so, would it be the same thing and safe for aquariums? What is a good mix of fluorite and gravel? Is 50/50 okay or should it be some other combination? Does the fluorite do anything to the water composition that I should be aware of? Any other information concerning fluorite in the aquarium would be appreciated. Thanks.
