Blue apatite is a gemstone that features swirls of blue color that look like a churning sea. These beads feature shades of dark blue, sea green and subtle hints of white. Blue apatite is a blue transparent phosphate material. It derives from the Greek word "apate," meaning to deceive, because it is often mistaken for other stones. The color of this material is such a vibrant blue that it is difficult to believe it could be found naturally. But this color is 100% natural. Mined in Brazil, Mexico, Myanmar, Africa and the USA, apatite is a great stone for encouraging inspiration and is famous for deepening meditation.
