Apatite’s main distinction is its colourful heterogeneity. Apatite may go all the way from being colourless to white, yellow, pink, grey, green, blue or purple and brown. Because of this array of colours, mineralogists used to confuse apatite with other minerals. Even the name apatite, which comes from the Greek word apatein, means to deceive or to be misleading. Our apatite has a striking blue colour.

Special conditions/ treatment: Be careful when handling with acids as the vast majority of them etch the apatite. Stone may be damaged by using chemicals.

Use: Our rough stones are a beautiful interior adornment – filling up a vase, fountain or a lamp with them creates an original design. In the exterior, they may be a perfect decoration of gardens. They are also suitable for mineralogist collections or may also be further processed, e.g. small crystals are ideal material for pendants.

Package weight: 1 and 25 kg

About the product: Small chips of rough stones have size approx. 7 - 15 mm. The minerals are sold in 1 kg bags, but we also offer a 25 kg package (carton box) for an advantageous price.
