Comment: A surprise from Sri Lanka: Grass green apatite, originally passed along as sapphire (luckily, this time excluding us, though I must confess I was not sure till IGI came back with 'apatite'). The local hand-cut produced a good sparkler but didn't fill the center, though I hesitate to call it a window. It just doesn't sparkle well in the center, even if you could not read a letters through it (the common test for a windowed gemstone). Hardly any inclusions, even under the lens, untreated, IGI report, global shipping and WildFish projects are included in our prices. Apatite has gained traction in paraiba colors. With as many colors and specialties as garnet or tourmaline, apatite is a variety to watch out for in the future, from pretty cat's eyes to yellow, purple, pink and neon blue. Often treated, we will ask the labs to start testing. This 1.24 comes from a controlled supply-chain of unheated sapphires. All told, a fine all-natural gem, fresh in hue and history. Suitable for ring or pendant.
