The apatite from the Greek Apatao, tricked-duped, named because of the possibilities of confusion especially with Beryl. It is a fluorinated or chlorinated calcium phosphate. Its hardness is low, 5 on the scale of Moshs, which makes it a gem reserved for collectors, hardly usable in jewelry or earrings.
To determine the quality of a stone, color is the most important criterion.
And do not forget, all the stones are fragile! Even the diamond ....
The apatites can be mounted in ring, earrings or pendant.
