Apatite Jewelry

Most people are unfamiliar with the gemstone or mineral known as apatite, and apatite jewelry is fairly rare although the gem is beautiful, especially in its blue-green colour or neon blue-green apatite (from Madagascar). So why the rarity? It is a rather soft gemstone, rating a 5 on the Moh's hardness scale. It can be difficult to work with, and I have the broken apatite in my studio to prove it. However, once the apatite jewelry is made, apatite is usually fine as long as you treat it with the care you would any good gemstone. (Fluorite, common for beaded jewelry, rates a 4 on the Moh's hardness scale).
Apatite comes from the Greek word for deceit since it was so easily confused with other gemstones.

The apatite bracelet is ever so simple: pretty neon aqua apatite rondelles lead to a smooth curved sterling silver tube with a cutout lotus hanging from it. A curved sterling silver lobster clasp is the closure.

The Romance of the Unpredictable
The unpredictable here is the combination of neon aqua apatite with flashing rainbow moonstone and a sprinkle of genuine amethysts! But this unpredictable combination works beautifully with the addition of sterling silver charms, tiny Thai Karen Hill tribes beads, and a lovely leaf-shaped toggle clasp. The bracelet boasts three strands of gemstones for a remarkable look.

My Stargazer
This apatite bracelet is made from pretty faceted coins of "peacock" apatite - so-called because of the peacock blue - a cross between a teal and a dark turquoise, I think, of the apatite. Gorgeous beads by master lampworker Robin Weber shine here with a medley of colours encased in glass. The bracelet is also special because of the prettiest dragonfly tube beads of sterling from the Thai Karen Hilltribes that make this a bangle bracelet. Looking for a different bracelet? Here it is!

Nassau
Glorious lampwork beads by Robin Weber have touches of silver and the beautiful colour of neon blue apatite. The apatite bracelet has two strands: the first strand features 4 lampwork beads, sterling silver and wonderful sharply faceted nuggets of apatite. The second strand is a charm bracelet - sterling silver links with little apatite nuggets hanging at intervals. One of our favorite pieces of apatite jewelry.

Edwardian Idyll
Little apatite disks in neon aqua (our favorite apatite color) make up the majority of this necklace. A pretty sterling silver filigree centerpiece drips three apatite ovals. This apatite jewelry reminds us of the necklaces worn by Edwardian ladies at the turn of the century.
