When I first saw these Apatite nuggets I was drawn simply to the color. But the more I looked at them the more I loved them for their ancient quality – like something found in an archaeological dig – asymmetrically faceted slabs, they are cracked and pitted in places which give them a unique charm. Even my 9 year old son commented – “These are cool, Mom! I love the cracks!” Indeed. To enforce the museum feel, I’ve enhanced them with 24K gold vermeil and large Faceted Smokey Quartz Rondelles. To modernize the look I incorporated smooth labradorite pebbles. I love the contrast. As you move about, the labradorite beads flash gorgeous shades of blue and olive . . . yummmmm.
Soon to be available in my Etsy store where my seller name is “queeniejewels”. Hope to see you there!
