Canary Apatite also known as Yellow Apatite jewellery have been selling like hot-cakes on TJC ever since we introduced them. But before you get to enjoy the exquisite new gem let’s get a little more acquainted with some interesting facts about this exotic coloured stone.
A mineral or a gem? We bet you didn’t know that Apatite is a mineral group as well as the generic term for many phosphates. It is the most abundant phosphorus-bearing mineral – the chemical element that is the main constituent of bones and teeth in humans as well as animals. Quite surprising, isn’t it?
Rarest of the rare: Despite being a common mineral, gem-quality Apatite is extremely rare to find affected with irregular production. Canary Apatite or Yellow Apatite hasn’t been mined since the last three years, and the produce around the world is getting over pretty quickly.
Deceiving and difficult to process: Apatite has taken its name from the Greek word Apatao – which means ‘to deceive’ – as it was often confused with Aquamarine and Emerald owing to the bright and rich colour. It is also one of the most difficult gemstones to process, is brittle and heat sensitive, and must be cut and worn with care.
Spiritually appealing: Canary Apatite is believed to clear confusion, apathy and negativity and alongside, stimulating the intellect to expand knowledge and truth. It is also known as the Stone of Manifestation, promoting a humanitarian outlook and service to others. Triple treat, we must say!
Best use: There is more to this gem than meets the eye, it is believed to support creative ideas and bring them to life. Canary Apatite is particularly useful in starting new ventures and developing business skills. What more do we want?
