Apatite, the most common phosphate mineral is a member of the Apatite group (isomorphous hexagonal mineral group) and usually appears in blue or green shade. However, the color ranges from colorless, white, yellow to red, brown, pink or purple. It is a brittle stone, and I wouldn’t recommend using it in bracelets or rings, unless extreme care is given in their wear.
Apatite is believed to decrease appetite (hunger) as well as enhance insight, creativity and learning. It is said that wearing apatite will enhance focus, clarity for concentration, intellect, acceptance, and unconditional love. This acceptance and unconditional love relates to the self as well as from others.
I have a couple shades in my bead stash, and used two of them in these lovely silver hoop earrings.
I used the green faceted apatite rondelles to wrap shiny silver hoops, and the more teal/cerulean blue color smooth rondelles to dangle from the oxidized silver pair.
I can’t decide which shade I like better. What do you think?
