These Apatite pieces are in their rough state and come in a one pound parcel. They have a beautiful darker blue color, and range in size from one to 2.5 cm.
The color on these pieces, in their natural state, gets brighter when wet, and would be a great, colorful addition to a fish tank, fountain, floral display, or rose bowl with water as a centerpiece. They can be hand polished using an arbor unit, but we would not recommend it for tumbling due to its size. Very affordable and tons of fun.
