Blue Apatite Crystals, Rough Tiny Nuggets
Price:   $2.50SKU:   MIN-APA-01
Options:   View Product Details   Add to my Cart  
Description:
Blue Apatite Crystals, Rough Tiny Nuggets

They are not faceted nor have any flat faces. I did hand-pick these from a much larger batch for clarity and consistency in color amongst them. I'd call them a medium sky blue, high translucency, and Extra Grade.

The photo is of 33 nuggets, totaling 6.75 grams available. So they average 0.205 grams per nugget. 1.0 grams should get you about 5 of these crystal nuggets.

Price is per 1.0 gram of the exact blue apatite crystals in the photo. Enter the number of grams desired as the quantity for this product.

Apatite is one of a few minerals produced and used by biological micro-environmental systems.

Apatite is derived from the Greek απατείν (apatein), which means to be misleading or deceive, since it was often mistaken for other minerals.

Steak: White
Hardness: 5 Mohs
Crystal: Hexagonal dipyramidal (6/m)
Refractive index: 1.63
Dispersion: 0.013
