DescriptionFINE RARE GEMSTONE: APATITE - 56.0 CT.
Apatite as a mineral is found wherever bones and teeth are found; including in your body, assuming you're not an invertebrate. In spite of the ubiquitous nature of this mineral, very few localities exist which can furnish transparent material suitable for gemstones, Madagascar, Mexico and Brazil making up the lion's share of the material seen today. This fine and large example hails from Madagascar, and it is cut in a square cushion style which shows off the grass green color and highly transparent nature of the stone. It is in pristine condition and eye-clean.
Overall Measurements: 23.4 x 21.1 mm, 56.0 cts.
Provenance: Ex G. Olson Collection
