Capture the colors of the sea in your designs with the blue apatite 4mm round beads from Dakota Stones. Available by the strand, these small beads are perfectly round in shape and feature ocean colors ranging from deep blue to sea green. Use these beads as spacers in tropical, ocean-inspired looks. 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, this stone has a Mohs hardness of 5. Metaphysical Properties: Often called a dual-action stone, blue apatite is used to achieve goals. It removes negativity, confusion and stimulates the mind to expand knowledge and truth. It is a great stone for encouraging inspiration and is famous for deepening meditation.
Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from piece to piece. Each strand includes approximately 52 beads.
