Apatite (Fluorapatite, chlorapatite) derives it's name from the greek word "apatein" meaning to mislead or deceive. It comes in a wide variety of colors and is frequently confused with other minerals, especially beryls. It has a hardness of 5 on the Mohs scale and is a member of the Hexagonal crystal system; it appears in a variety of forms including oolites, stalactites, earthy or fibrous crusts, and can be massive, or coarsely granular; it can be a rock-forming mineral in extensive beds, and also appears as concretions in clays and shales.

Tourmaline [(Na, Ca)(Fe, Mg, Al, Li)3Al6(BO3)3 Si6)18(OH)4] is a highly variable mineral with a hardness of 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs scale. It occurs in many colors, including black, blue, green, pink, and colorless. The color is often zoned (more than one color in a crystal or gem). It is commonly associated with quartz and potassium feldspar, and is structurally related to beryl, cordierite, and dioptase. It is one of the few common Boron minerals. [Mineralogy, Perkins]

Spinel (MgAl2O4) is a magnesium aluminum oxide mineral, with a hardness of 8 on the Mohs scale. It occurs in a range of colors, from colorless to black, with red, lavender, blue, white and others possible. It has a long history of use as a gemstone. In nature, it is formed by high-temperature metamorphism of carbonates or schists, and is often associated with calcite, dolomite, garnet, corundum, diopside, olivine, and other dense minerals.
