Apatite is 'the Stone of Inspiration and Motivation'.
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.
This is a good size for a center-stone in a ring design.
I wanted to buy some gems because I think they'd be cool to have and this seemed like the best website to buy them from. The website is a bit old looking and could use an update to the user interface but otherwise it's great.
I was looking for a tourmaline but although there were numerous beautiful stones to choose from, there was none that fit my need. Then I thought of some other beautiful stones I love and sunstone came to mind. I so thrilled when I was able to find the most gorgeous sunstone and with the exact specifications of my need. GemSelect makes it extremely easy to find the exact stone your looking for quickly and check out is just as easy to go through. I would (and have) definitely recommend GemSelect because of the large selection of stones, ease of use, and fast affordable shipping.
Easiest website to find what I'm looking for as a starter gem collector. Many years in precious metals I decided to expand my interest. This website makes it easy to search exactly what I'm looking for with great description of what I'm purchasing.
