Gorgeous, clear apatite
High quality neon apatite, but the beads are very small - much smaller than they looked in the photos here. However, I don't wear chunky necklaces because I find them very uncomfortable after a couple of hours. Nicky Butler designs large bails on his crosses and I was able to slide one over the apatite beads. It looks gorgeous with the Ethopain opal-green chalcedony cross!!!! A winner for apatite, such a rare stone, just be aware it is a fairly petite scale. But if you have a Nicky Butler cross or something with a large bail, you will love this to add some variety to the look! Well done, Jay!PhinxMinx, SC
I have been wanting an Apatite piece for a couple years now from Jay. Unfortunately I can't wear large jewelry pieces so I couldn't order a lot of past designs. This necklace is described as a "sky blue" maybe with a touch of teal (I think) and the beads are small, Yay! It makes me feel like summer and think it will look gorgeous with a white linen/cotton blouse. Maybe with black also (haven't tried yet). Bonus, the rondelle beads are small enough I can add some pendants to it as well. Very happy with all my Jay King purchases!Flygirl2164, AZ
