  • Details
    Apatite is a calcium phosphate mineral (just like teeth!) that is naturally found in a variety of colors, such as: yellow, blue, green, gray, and brown. This crushed apatite is from Brazil and has a beautiful, deep blue color. Apatite has a hardness of 5 on the Moh's hardness scale; therefore, it is relatively easy to sand if you are using this material in your woodworking projects. This crushed material is extremely clean and is VERY high quality.

    Material Size:
    Medium - material is considered to be medium to fine (sand), ranging between 2 millimeters to 0.25 millimeters.

    This product is NOT man-made, mixed with resin, or stabilized. Stone authenticity is extremely important to all artisans; therefore, we validate the source of all our minerals before they are crushed. All of our minerals are handpicked by me (Missy) at some of the largest mineral shows in the United States.

    Please see product images for color, approximate size, and quality. Picture taken in full sun - material is dry. Measurements are using the metric system (millimeters).

    Frequently Asked Questions

    My tracking says delivered, but I did not receive my order?

    Makers Minerals ships all orders with a tracking, including to locations outside of the United States. Our customers can follow their order using the tracking number that we always provide or through the Etsy app. Please contact your postal provider if you did not receive your package, especially if your tracking says "delivered". If you reside in the United States, we are happy to help you locate your package by calling your local USPS and getting GPS coordinates for your package and/or submitting a claim stating that your package might have been misplaced or stolen. Makers Minerals is not responsible for packages that were marked as "Delivered" by your postal provider.

    What is the difference between mineral chips and crushed minerals?

    Mineral chips are usually tumbled to slightly tumbled pieces that can range in size and shape. Most shops buy mineral chips from a wholesaler (usually China) and then resell them on ETSY or elsewhere. They are rarely curated or tumbled by the actual seller.

    Crushed minerals are very different! They are not mass produced or offered at wholesale. Usually, the seller (myself) hand picks the material to be crushed; therefore, they can control the quality of the end-product.

    The deep teal blue color is amazing. Very nice size & consistency. Your site is one of my favs for crushed gemstones on Etsy. Shipping great as well. Thank you so much for such great products.


    Another perfect transaction...The securely wrapped package even arrived earlier than expected. And once again, every mineral packet was impeccably clean, clearly labeled and exactly as shown in the photos. In addition, the communication is excellent. We will definitely continue to be regular customers!!



    Everything about this order was completely perfect!! From the mailing, the packaging, the presentation and most of all the materials, nothing could be improved. The most surprising thing was that every single item was the exact color and size as shown in the photos. Absolutely, we would recommend this shop!!


    Great quality love it thank you ­čÖĆ
