Apatite

Apatite is a beautiful gemstone but it is virtually unknown to the general public probably because its low durability rating means it is not often used in jewelry although it could make very intriguing pendants, brooches or earrings.

It does have admirers for its powerful spiritual properties and it is beloved by gemstone collectors for curiosity value.

Apatite Colors

Apatite has such a range of stunning colors that if it were not for its relative softness it would be a much sought after gemstone.

The standard green, golden yellow and blue gemstones are pretty enough but the neon blue and vivid turquoise versions have an intensity that rivals the famous $10,000 per carat Paraiba Tourmalines!

Apatite Species

Apatites consist of the same phosphate mineral that makes up agricultural fertilizer and nutrients as well as the major component of our bones and teeth.

A small percentage of this rather drab material can be turned into some incredibly bright and colorful gemstones.

There are also some cat's eye apatite gemstones.

Apatite Price

Like nearly all colored gemstones, it is the color of apatites that determine their price. This consists of the hue, the tone and the saturation of said color.

  • hue is the base color of the gemstone
  • tone is how light or dark the gemstone
  • saturation refers to the intensity of the gemstone

The most valuable color is described as neon, electric or, sometimes, swimming pool blue and is very similar to the very expensive Paraiba Tourmalines but at a fraction of the price.

Carat Weight

Apatite gemstones larger than a carat in weight are very rare and the price can jump dramatically as they get bigger.

A simple golden yellow apatite up to one carat in weight will be around $10 - $20 per carat according to the brightness of the color and its clarity. However the same qualities in a gemstone that is larger than a carat can mean a price jump to $80 per carat.

The most expensive Paraiba blue apatites are about $40 per carat for smaller stones and $180 per carat for those over one carat in weight.

For more details please refer to our full Apatite Info page here

Treatments

Most apatites are not treated in any way other than the usual cutting and polishing into gemstones.

We have heard that some of the Paraiba blue examples have been heated to get the neon color but as apatite is very heat sensitive this can be a risky practice.

Where are Apatites found?

Brazil, Canada, India, Madagascar and Mexico are the world's top producers of apatite gemstones and Spain is known for its Asparagus Stone green gems while Maine in the US is the source for the lovely lilac apatites.

What jewelry is Apatite suitable for?

Apatites are rated at 5 on Mohs hardness scale which is considered low for jewelry however earrings, pendants and brooches should not be a problem and its use as a spiritual crystal is not affected.

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 don’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!!!!

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.
