-- ONE PURCHASE, ONE 10g PARCEL OUT OF THE PICTURE DEPICTED. More than one available --
***UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS ONE 10g (50ctw) PARCEL OF NATURAL RARE MADAGASCAR NEON BLUE APATITE GEM ROUGH - "N"***
THIS IS VERY HIGHLY PRIZED MATERIAL!
Here is some rare top end true neon blue apatite gem rough mined from the Ankadilalana Mine, Ankadilalana, in the Antananarivo Province of Madagascar. The material produced from this mine has always been of significant value and prized by collectors. We are talking a fantastic neon blue color here! This material ranges from 2 to 10/ct per stone per parcel, and you will receive 5 to 30 pieces per parcel. Years back, a single mine, "Mina da Batalha" in the Federal Brazilian State of Paraiba produced an exquisite neon blue to blue-green tourmaline, the color of which had never before been seen. This tourmaline is still very rare and commands very high prices. Shortly after the discovery of this unusual tourmaline, a similarly colored variety of Apatite began to be mined in Madagascar. The color of this neon-colored Apatite rivals the color that is seen in the best Paraiba tourmaline, but commands a much less coveted value per carat than the Paraiba tourmaline.
