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 24 beads.
