Blue Apatite Heart 8cm
Blue Apatite Heart from Madagascar. This deep blue crystal has been carefully carved by artisans into a heart shape measuring 8cm wide, enhancing its beauty. It displays a mix of dark blue tones contrasted with patches of vivid aquamarine. Apatite comes in many different colours, but blue is one of the more unusual shades found in apatite. This strikingly coloured 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 stunning piece of interior decor.
