Sometimes the gemstone bead is also multicolored. The green variety is also called 'asparagus stone'. The green color is the most common color. By carefully sharpening the crystals, the deep color comes out beautifully. Apatite beads also have a cat's eye variant. That is the bead with a stripe-shaped light effect.
