This is a natural oval facet Apatite in the exact size of 8.08 x 6.11 x 3.07mm. The gemstone weight is 1.08ct and it was mined in Madagascar. This Apatite comes in VS clarity. "VS" stands for "Very Slightly Included" and is considered eye-clean. This gemstone has been heated to improve its color and clarity. It is a very common treatment for gemstones. The product is sold as pictured: 1pc oval Apatite for the price listed.
The gemstone comes in calibrated size of 8 X 6 mm which is preferred for standard-sized jewelry settings.
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.
Apatite is 'the Stone of Inspiration and Motivation'.
This is a good size for a center-stone in a ring design.
I can't comment on my experience until I receive the item. When I receive the item,if it was well represented by the picture, I will be very happy. I will share my experience with all my friends and I will definitely use gem select again.
I have recently been updating some old jewelry and wanted to add gemstones to some of the pieces. I am amazed at the selection available at GemSelect and found exactly what I was looking for. The prices were very reasonable as well. I would definitely purchase from you again if I am in the market for gemstones again in the future.
Completely would recommend this company to any gem collector, jewelry store, or someone looking for a gemstone to repair their jewelry. There is an abundance of choices at great prices! If you dona't see what you need exactly the customer service department will go above and beyond to meet your needs. Shipping is very reasonable! The gemstones always arrive well before the expected arrival date. This company has very high standards of meeting their customers needs! They are the number 1 company I go to when looking for any gemstone. They are also very detailed in their descriptions so there is no confusion at all as what you are purchasing! Highly recommended!!!!
The selection of gemstones is absolutely amazing! The pictures allow you to get important angles of each individual stone and, from what I see, there aren't any just standard photos used unless there are duplicates of very small stones- which is completely understandable. They tend to describe their reasoning too.
