Apophyllite minerals are found in a variety of colors including white, green, yellow, and brown. They are often transparent or translucent with a vitreous luster. The name "apophyllite" comes from the Greek word meaning "to peel off," referring to the mineral's tendency to flake or peel when heated. Apophyllite is used in a variety of ways including as a gemstone, in jewelry, and in ornamental carvings.

Apophyllite is a hydrated potassium calcium silicate mineral. It is a member of the phyllosilicate group of minerals and typically forms in fibrous, columnar, or massive habits. Apophyllite has been used as a gemstone, ornamental stone, and lapidary material for centuries. It is also used in some industrial applications, such as the production of ceramics, glass, and Portland cement. Apophyllite is prepared for use in jewelry and other decorative applications by cutting and polishing. It is also used as an abrasive in lapidary work. Apophyllite is relatively soft and has low specific gravity, making it well-suited for use in a variety of applications.

Apophyllite is a relatively rare mineral and is only found in a few localities worldwide. Some notable deposits are found in India, Iceland, Austria, Germany, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, the UK, and the US.
