Create an Intense Splash of Blue with this Vivid, Striking Sphere of the Mineral Apatite! An interesting aside: Moon rocks collected by astronauts during the Apollo program contain traces of Apatite. So this attractive mineral has celestial relatives! Ground Apatite has been used for years in the manufacture of fertilizer (and pigments, too). But this gorgeous specimen escaped the grinder to become a rich, deeply colorful carved orb! If you are mesmerized by Apatite Blue, you will want this spherical magnet handy. Don't delay - this Grade 1 specimen won't last long! Madagascar. Note: stands in photos not included.
