Apatite Beads

Apatite is a relatively soft stone (5 on the Mohs scale), which makes it easier to shape. This is actually the reason why they only cut the best Apatite stones. 

Apatite beads: Colour Variations

This gemstone can be found in various colours such as; pink, yellow, green, blue, violet, red and sometimes even multicolored or transparant.

The green variation of Apatite is referred to as the "Asparagus stone". Green is actually the most common colour that Apatite is found in. As the gemstones are carefully cut, the deep green colour begins to appear. 

Apatite also comes in the "cat eye" variant. "Cat eye" is a stripy light effect that resembles the slit-shaped eye of a cat. This variant can be found in Burma and Sri Lanka and is blue in colour.

Characteristics from Apatite Beads

Apatite is often mistaken for other gemstones. It is mainly confused with Olivine, Quartz, Tourmaline and Beryl. However, the hardness of Apatite is what differs it from the ones it tends to be mistaken for. The other materials prove to be much harder than Apatite. 

The vast majority of the Apatite found is used in the industry. This gemstone belongs to a group of phospates. The phosphor is separated from Apatite by means of heat in combination with other minerals. It is then used in alloys, matches and pesticides. Phosphorus comes in the form of phosphate in all living organisms. Calcium phosphate (hydroxyapatite) is an important component of our bones and teeth, for example.

Tip

Apatite should only be cleaned with distilled water and a soft brush.
