Apatite is a group of phosphate minerals, usually referring to hydroxyapatite, fluorapatite and chlorapatite, with high concentrations of OH−, F− and Cl− ions, respectively, in the crystal.
Apatite is found in sedimentary, metamorphic, igneous, and volcanic rocks. Apatite can form in sedimentary processes, igneous processes (e.g., Pegmatite), metamorphic processes, and in hydrothermal vents, as well as production by biological systems. Apatite is one of a few minerals produced and used by biological micro-environmental systems. Apatite is the defining mineral for 5 on the Mohs scale.
I've ordered two items and they have been as expected.
Cayce rated this item 5 stars
the pieces were absolutely beautiful; one was a really muted piece, which I wasn’t thrilled about, but they were pretty stunning!
So happy with the gifts- beautiful!
