This gemstone is a natural 5.63 x 4.91 x 3.28mm oval facet Apatite. The gemstone was mined in Madagascar and has a finished weight of 0.6ct. The clarity of this Apatite is "VS" which stands for "Very Slightly Included" and is definitely eye-clean. This gemstone has been heated to improve its color and clarity. It is a very common treatment for gemstones. The item is sold as seen in the picture: 1 piece Apatite for the price listed.
Apatite gemstones work well when placed over various Chakras according to their color - green for the Heart Chakra, orange for Sacral, yellow for Solar Plexus and so on.
It is believed that wearing apatite is beneficial in all matters to do with bones and teeth.
This is a good size for a center-stone in a ring design.
O.K. experience. Pictures could be a little better, offer more views, especially full face on, to get a better idea of how a stone would look mounted in a ring, i.e., how centered the star is. The prices seem pretty fair.
I really enjoy how you can sort the types of gemstones by cut, color, and size. The website is laid out very well. To be able to sort through the gemstones on the rolling slide to the left of the page is a useful tool.
I would recommend gemselect because it is the easiest way to find whatever gemstone you are looking for. they have pretty much everything so its impossible to walk away without what you went their for.
I make wire wrapped pendants for birthday presents, and always feature a birthstone as the base for the project. GemSelect has a wide variety of shape/size pieces to fit any budget. A detailed description of each individual stone is perfect for those searching for particular stones for their application, and information on stone treatments and the like are phenomenal.
found what looks to be an incredible boulder opal on gemselect.com. Also got a bit carried away and bought more gems than anticipated. It's expensive to pay for these stones in this way, but the convenience makes it worthwhile.
