Blue Apatite is an exotic gemstone found in various places around the world. Although apatite is a very common mineral, gemstone-quality apatite is extremely rare. The natural color of apatite is typically green but also comes in yellow, blue, pink and purple. The name apatite comes from the Greek meaning "to deceive" because it is often mistaken for other gemstones like topaz or tourmaline.
Caring for your blue apatite jewelry is a simple process that will ensure that your gemstone maintains its beautiful sparkle. The best way to keep your gem clean is to bring it to your local Helzberg Diamonds store for a complimentary cleaning and inspection. At home, you can brighten your blue apatite jewelry by gentling wiping the gemstone with a jewelry polishing cloth and warm water.
