This gemstone has not been treated in any way. It is 100% natural untreated.
The gemstone comes in calibrated size of 10 X 8 mm which is preferred for standard-sized jewelry settings.
It is believed that wearing apatite is beneficial in all matters to do with bones and teeth.
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.

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 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.
