Apatite is a calcium phosphate that is typically green, but also can be blue, yellow, reddish-brown, violet, yellow-green ("asparagus stone"), colourless or multicolored. Colors often form due to natural irradiation or the presence of rare earth elements. Its name comes from the Greek word apate, meaning "to deceive," as apatite is deceivingly similar to more-valuable minerals like olivine, beryl, peridot and topaz. Apatite is actually three different minerals, depending on the predominance of either fluorine, chlorine or the hydroxyl group. These minerals are therefore called fluorapatite, chlorapatite and hydroxylapatite. However, since it is difficult to distinguish among them, they are usually classified as a single mineral.

Properties: Psychics use the stone to open the third eye and bring revelations closer. Many also say it brings love, harmony and peace.

Description: These chips are untreated and the colours range from blue to green.
