Apatite is a calcium phosphate mineral that appears yellow, blue, green, gray, and brown. Moon rocks brought back to earth by Apollo astronauts in the late 1960s and 1970s were found to contain traces of apatite.

Chrysoprase is an apple green chalcedony gemstone that derives its color from nickel sometimes misidentified as Imperial Jade. It is sourced mainly from Australia, Brazil, Poland, Russia, Arizona, and California.
Chrysocolla is a copper mineral. From the Greek chrysos, "golden" and kolla, "glue". This name was given as it was used by the Ancient Greeks in soldering metals, now fulfilled by borax. It is sourced in Africa's Congo, Chile, Israel, Mexico, Russia, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and Idaho
