Yttrium(III) fluoride (YF3) is an inorganic chemical compound. It is not known naturally in 'pure' form. The fluoride minerals containing essential yttrium include tveitite-(Y) (Y,Na)6Ca6Ca6F42 and gagarinite-(Y) NaCaY(F,Cl)6. Sometimes mineral fluorite contains admixtures of yttrium.

Conditions/substances to avoid are: acids, active metals and moisture.
