Gemstone: Apatite - 29.98 Cts.
Apatite is a beautiful mineral, but, unfortunately, it is very
difficult to find and cut gem-quality material. This exquisite
gemstone displays a vibrant, slightly golden-yellow hue. Because
the stone was cut with expertise, the gem features strong
brilliance and very well-balanced and saturated color. This
top-example out of Mexico also features an attractive kite shape
with step cut faceting and excellent polish. The eye-clean stone
has only minor nicks to only a few of the facet junctions. Due to
the soft nature of the material, this is common. Overall, this
stone is in great condition and weighs an impressive 29.98
Measurements: 27.87 x 20.57 x 12.89 mm, 29.98 cts.
