About Apatite: The color of apatite is similar to beautiful tropical waters. Apatite is actually the mineral that makes up the teeth and bones of all vertebrate animals. The name comes from the Greek word apate, which means, "to deceive." Apatite was often confused, therefore "deceiving" many, with some of the more valuable gems such as tourmaline, olivine, peridot, topaz and beryl. Apatite's history with humans is long, yet surprisingly vague. While the stone has been associated with appetite suppression for centuries, few other traditions are known. Give in to the inspirational qualities of the Apatite crystal stone and encourage a peaceful respite from the confusion that comes from adulting in the modern world.
About labradorite: Labradorite is truly a fascinatingly beautiful mineral. Its a mineral whose charm is not fully noticed and may be overlooked if not viewed from the proper position. When the light hits this plain gray stone, flashes of blue, yellow and green, called labradorescence are revealed. Labradorite was first found in 1770 on the Labrador Peninsula in Canada. It is also found in Norway, and the former USSR. Legend says that Labradorite is a power stone, allowing you to see through illusions and determine the actual form of your dreams and goals. Sounds good to me!
About Dalmatian Jasper: With its natural dots reminiscent of the dog's coat, it's easy to see where Dalmatian Jasper gets its name. This opaque white stone is spotted with black and brown spots. The black is actually black tourmaline. Dalmatian jasper is believed to lessen or remove disillusionment.
About Phosphosiderite: Phosphosiderite is definitely a mouthful to say, but essentially means that this stone is a combination of phosphorous and iron. Phosphosiderite is often found in shades of pink, purple, lilac, red, or brown. This is a relatively rare stone and can be found in only a couple of places in the world. Many believe that phosphosiderite holds universal power and is often used in meditation. It is thought that this stone brings happiness, relaxation, and restores emotional equilibrium.
