Apatite

Apatite is a calcium fluo-phosphate mineraland not commonly faceted due to it's very sensitive physical properties-low hardness of only 5, very brittle and sensitive to grinding and polishing. It is more of a "collector" stone, not one for jewelry. Nice RIof 1.64 with medium dispersion. This stone is much more attractive than the photo…lots of sparkle and brilliance in a nice yellow tone.
