Apatite-Calcite 4.1 Inch Sphere Weighing 3.3 Pounds From South Africa
This Apatite-Calcite specimen from South Africa was cut, hand-ground, and polished into a 3.3 pound, 4.1 inch polished sphere.
This is a natural stone with no enhancements. The excellent polish of this sphere brings out the strong hues of vibrant, deep orange calcite intermingled with blue and brown apatite crystals, many of which show a distinct hexagonal crystal habit, in this attractive sphere.
Of note: All of our spheres come from natural stones that have been formed over millions of years. Polishing enhances the natural occurring colors. Please note that the cut and polish may not remove all inclusions, natural lines or indentations. This is normal and part of the natural material.
Apatite is a group of phosphate minerals, usually referring to hydroxyapatite, fluorapatite, and chlorapatite. Apatite is transparent to translucent, most commonly green but can also be colorless, yellow, and blue to violet, pink, or brown. Here we see it as a vibrate blue.
Calcite forms as chemical sedimentary deposits as limestone, can be regionally or contact metamorphosed into marbles and rarely forms igneous rocks (carbonatites). It is typically colorless or white, however due to impurities it can occur in shades of red, yellow, green blue, violet, brown, and black. Here, we see it as an intense orange.
