THIS IS A VERY HIGHLY PRIZED GEMSTONE!

Here is indeed a rare top end true neon blue apatite where the gem rough was mined from the Ankadilalana Mine in Ankadilalana, of 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 World Class gem here my fellow members with a remarkable luster & brilliance from a well executed Portuguese cut. This gem would make an excellent gift for that collector or that someone special! 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's. This absolutely phenomenal gemstone will make an excellent gem for a ring, but especially a pendant or single earring that will stand out with flare. This specific gemstone runs a guaranteed around $140 from a jeweler or gem shopping network for this cut, color, clarity, and gem weight.

We are not new in the gem trade or auctioneering. We offer all natural gemstones, gem carvings, & facet/cab/specimen grade gem rough, with full disclosure of any enhancements known. We also offer excellent service in all aspects, secure packaging, and fast shipping. You will not be disappointed with this very fine gem!! Please realize that colors can slightly differ from monitor to monitor or with change of lighting (natural, fluorescent, full spectrum, or incandescent).
