Apatites

 

Apatite Gemstone

 

 

 

 

Apatite originates from the Greek word for "cheat". That unfair title was allegedly earned from apatite's possible confusion with amblygonite, andalusite, brazilianite, precious beryl, sphene, topaz or tourmaline. Apatite, a stone seldom found in jewelry stores and virtually unknown to the general public, is beloved by collectors for its many different colors and forms.

At 5 on the Mohs scale, apatite must be cut, set, and worn gently. Earrings, pendants, pins, and tie tacks are probably safe, but ring use should be limited to occasional wear pieces with protective settings. Apatite comes in many different shapes.
