This is a natural round facet Apatite in the exact size of 3.95mm. The gemstone weight is 0.29ct and it was mined in Madagascar. The clarity of this Apatite is graded as VVS-VS, it is a little better than Eye-clean. This gemstone has been heated to improve its color and clarity. It is a very common treatment for gemstones. The Apatite is sold as pictured: 1pc round Apatite for the price listed.
The gemstone comes in calibrated size of 4 mm which is preferred for standard-sized jewelry settings.
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.
For gem web photos - - it would help some inexperienced gem buyers like me to show the gem next to a common object such as a US dime for example. Two of the blue star sapphires I purchased are not suited for ring mounting - - way too small. Now I know to purchase a caret weight of about 12 to 20 carets.
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 liked how many types of gems were listed, and the variety of looks and types for each. Pretty good prices, too. Especially on shipping.I haven't received my items yet but I'm very much looking forward to them, and highly considering buying again for myself when I've got the money to spare.
