Product Information

Sizes are approximate

Hole Size:  0.4-1.4mm

High-quality, semiprecious gemstone green apatite beads are hand-cut to a faceted briolette. The name comes from the Greek word apate, which means, "to deceive." It could be said apatite had been deceived into allowing itself to be confused with some of the more valuable gems such as tourmaline, olivine, peridot, topaz and beryl. This stone is best used in earrings and a necklace because, with its Mohs rating of 5--comparable to the hardness of teeth, it can be easily scratched. Sizes, shapes and colors may vary with handcrafted items.
