The product is a natural oval facet Apatite in color with the exact size of 7.07 x 6.14 x 4.54mm. The gemstone weight is 1.39ct and it was mined in Madagascar. The clarity of this Apatite is "VS" which stands for "Very Slightly Included" and is definitely eye-clean. This Apatite has been heated to improve its color and clarity. It is a very common and safe treatment. 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.
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.
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 believe this market could grow very large in the wake of cryptocurrencies as gold and silver become less popular. I believe birthstones will begin to increase in popularity for jewelry and meaningful trinkets. I think this website should consider another metric that gauges how "raw" the mineral/gem/stone/etc. is-- how processed it has been. Some people may want to get the raw material from a specific location, know its history, and contract someone to refine it into a personal keepsake.
I had a limited budget and wanted a star ruby. GemSelect offered small, but pretty stones at a very reasonable price. I've always been satisfied with my GemSelect purchases, although there are also eBay vendors I use for less expensive gems. Their selection of more expensive stones, like rubies, is very limited, however.
