This is a natural pear facet Apatite in the exact size of 7.95 x 5.86 x 4.07mm. This gemstone is from Madagascar and has a finished weight of 1.12ct. 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 Apatite is sold as pictured: 1pc pear Apatite for the price listed.
The Apatite has a calibrated size of 8 X 6 mm which is perfect for standard 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.
This is a good size for a center-stone in a ring design.
Ive been shopping here many times before, so navigating around was easy. I am accustomed to the quality of the items and that's the main reason I come here. When I need non heated stones I know I can count on GemSelect being authentic. I trust them because I double check their quality. And never had problems with them. And yes I do recommend shopping there to some of my clients who are "less knowledgable" of industry. GemSelect is so user friendly they're great for beginner gem shoppers!
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'd say that the information in the descriptions is rather sparse, and the state of the gems/their color treatment or lack thereof is vague and unimpressive. Nevertheless they've got a great variety of offerings. The only area I can see that they could improve is in turquoise, which could include unstabilised cabs or at least specific names relative to their mines as opposed to appearances. Thanks
