Blue Apatite Heart 8.2cm
Blue Apatite Heart from Madagascar. This dreamy-blue coloured crystal has been carefully carved by artisans into a heart shape measuring 8.2cm wide, enhancing its beauty. Apatite comes in many different colours, but blue is one of the more unusual shades found in apatite. This eye-catching deep blue stone is not seen very often polished into a beautiful object.The name Apatite comes from a Greek word meaning 'to deceive': apatite was thus named because this mineral is often mistaken for other minerals. Generally a very brittle mineral, you need very good quality rough sources of apatite to be able to shape or work this stone into a high quality product like this piece. Blue Apatite is considered to be a deeply spiritual stone, and purports to have a calming, cleansing aura. Ideal for the collector, healer, or simply as a striking piece of interior decor.
