Apatite Jewelry Stuns in Shades of Blue, Green and Yellow
Like a rare bird, the apatite gemstone is a sight that only the truly informed are lucky enough to behold. Until recently, apatite was not well known among the general public, but this breathtaking gemstone is certainly worthy of fame, and collectors have appreciated its beauty for years.
Apatite gemstones are available in various shades of blue, green and yellow. Recently, a neon blue-green shade of apatite from Madagascar has become available, increasing apatite's popularity in the fine jewelry world. Some shades of blue apatite displaying chatoyancy — a fascinating optical reflectance effect — can be cut into silky-smooth cat's eyes. Other apatite is cut to set and sparkle in apatite rings or strung in chips to create multi-strand apatite necklaces.
The apatite gemstone can be easily confused with other minerals, such as beryl, but upon closer inspection it displays a subtly distinct beauty. The many faces of apatite jewelry are well represented in the Ross-Simons' jewelry collection, which features varying shades and styles of apatite jewelry. Choose from glittering apatite rings, apatite torsade necklaces, stylish apatite bracelets, apatite chandelier earrings and more.
