1.53 ct. Bi-Color Apatite

Color:  Medium Dark Purple / Slightly Greenish-Blue Clarity:  Slightly Included
Origin:  Karibib, Namibia Cut:  Cushion
Treatments:  None  Measurements:  9.4 x 4.6 mm

Probably the single most unusual faceted bi-color Apatite that we have ever encountered.  Not a species that produces a great number of bi-colors anyway, this gem combines two most unusual colors.  The stone is from the deposit in Namibia which has been producing some very fine purple hues - always rare in Apatite - so it is not surprising that is one of the colors here.  What you do not expect however, is to see this color paired with a classic Apatite greenish-blue color.  The combination is nothing short of wild - a great collector's piece and the single example we found.
