Apatite beads why are they so special ? Apatite is a relatively soft gemstone (5 on the Mohs scale). It is therefore easy to edit. That is also the reason why only the best apatite is sharpened. This gemstone comes in different colors; colorless, pink, yellow, green, blue, violet, red. Sometimes the gemstone bead also appears multi-colored. The green variant is also called 'asparagus'. The green color is the most common color. By carefully sharpening the crystals the deep color is very beautiful. Apatite beads also have a cat-eye variant. That is the bead with a stripe-shaped light effect. The bead then resembles the slit-shaped eye of a cat. This form is mainly found in Burma and Sri Lanka. This special gemstone is characterized by a fibrous blue color.
