Material

apatite

This is a 2.42 ct lemon yellow apatite, 9.4 x 7.8 x 5.3mm, untreated, lightly included with needle like inclusions invisible to the naked eye, and cut by yours truly in Marco Voltolini's "Rubicello" design. That Marco knows how to design some purty cuts.

Apatite can look like a lot of other stones, since it ranges from yellow to blue to purple--it's name comes from the Greek word απατείν (apatein), which means to deceive or be misleading. As a mineral, it's got all kinds of uses, but we don't care about that. It's just pretty. It is pretty soft, though, so it works best as a pendant stone, or simply as a collector's piece.

Remember, 'colored' gemstones (really, anything but a diamond) are best measured by their dimensions when comparing across species. Density does not imply value.

If you would like to set this stone in a piece of jewelry like a necklace, ring, or bracelet, send me a convo and we'll figure it out! I can set in gold (14-24K; yellow, white, rose, or green), platinum, or silver (I generally prefer Argentium Sterling)--if you'd like some other metal, feel free to ask!

Payments

Secure options
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
My general sales terms are "payment due upon completion", although I generally like to require half up front for any custom work. If your order is particularly large, I may ask for payment after you approve the prototype.

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns, exchanges, and cancellations

Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 21 days of delivery
Request a cancellation within: 24 hours of purchase

The following items can't be returned or exchanged

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)

Returns and exchange details

If for some reason you don't like what you received, by all means contact me! We'll work something out, whether it be an exchange, refund, etc. Again, since most of my work is through Alchemy, I will hopefully have confirmed the design through photos, and once you approve a prototype, I don't expect too many issues to arise. Again, just contact me and we'll work something out--I don't want any unhappy customers!

Questions about your order?

Please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
