Cannot figure out what stone this is

I acquired this beautiful polished stone sphere and I google imaged it and the results kept pulling up blue apatite but I’m not sure if that’s what it is.

Hi! Does it have a schiller (shimmer) to it? A blue flash perhaps? It looks like it could be an apatite, but from the pic it also looks like it could be labradorite?

I thought the same that it could be either but I’m starting to think :thinking: it’s blue apatite

Yes, your last pic looks the most like apatite. Here are a couple of my blue apatite spheres. Of course the usual disclaimer about using a pic for ID, but yours def looks like it could be apatite. cheers!:v:

Thank you so much for this. It was driving me crazy :joy:Do you think the black inclusions could be tourmaline or obsidian or something :thinking:

Thank you!!

Can you get a RI on it? That is the best way to determine what it is.
