The Apatite is sold as pictured: 1pc oval Apatite for the price listed.

Apatite is 'the Stone of Inspiration and Motivation'.
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.
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've been searching on this website for a while, constantly considering different gems. The prices are great, check out and shopping cart are easily readable, product pricing and selection is amazing. Everything is very easy to navigate and easy to understand.
Always a fantastic selection of gemstones in an affordable price range from inexpensive, nice collector's stones to high fashion jewelry pieces. I always trust that the item will be as represented. I purchased a kyanite today and know the stone will be genuine and high quality.
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.
I wanted to buy some gems because I think theya'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 ita's great.
