Blue-Teal Apatite - Old Mine Checkertop

195.00

Apatite is composed of calcium phosphate, which is the same material that makes up teeth and bones. Color saturation defines the value. Specimens with high color intensity are considered most valuable. Gem-quality apatite is rarely found in large sizes; stones over one carat can command very high premiums.
