Really nice Apatite, rough came from Pakistan. This gem is nearly colorless, with just a hint of pink. But look how it picks up colors from its surroundings. The bright pink and blue is in sunlight, while the darker blue is in shade.

Apatite can be colorless, white, yellow, brown, gray, red, pink, purple, blue, or green. Some specimens are even multicolored. Coloration is often due to the presence of rare earth elements or natural irradiation.
