Description:First off, let me say that this is one of the most phenomenal colors in the gem world. It is very difficult to photograph as it has a very bright electric blue color. It is a very good size stone from a lesser known locality in Brazil. In my opinion, these are the BEST blue color Apatite gems that I have seen from anywhere in the world. Please note that this stone has been heat treated to ehance the color, but all of these gems are heated, and it is a very well known practice that is accepted among dealers and collectors in the hobby. This "sparkler" is one of the most attractive and rare colors for any gem that I know of. I would like to point out that the color in person does not look exactly like the pictures, but that neon hue is almost impossible to duplicate with the camera.
