    Gemstones: Apatite Parure - 136.32 TCW
    Mexico

    This offering is of a stunning matched parure of 45 well-cut Apatite gemstones of the most appealing greenish-yellow hue. Apatite is a beautiful mineral and, unfortunately, it is very difficult to find gem-quality material. To have found enough material to make this lovely parure was quite a feat. Luckily, here is a set of 37 stones for a necklace and 8 for earrings, which have been fashioned into classic rounds with a modified brilliant cut. Each stone displays amazing luster and scintillation. A few of the stones have very small inclusions, which is common with this type of material. It is virtually unheard of to find eye-clean Apatite. The largest stone in the huge set measures 14.15 x 9.21 mm and weighs 11 carats, while the smallest stone measures 6.03 x 4.03 mm and weighs 0.86 carats. This stylish set will make the most amazing necklace plus two drop-style earrings. The advantage of loose stones is that they can be set and styled any way desired.
    Total Carat Weight: 136.32
