It has been a number of years now since we have secured an example of this unusual, steely-blue Apatite that seems to occur only in and around Mogok, Burma.  In contrast to the intense bluish-greens from Madagascar and Brazil, this is a natural (unheated) color.  They are rather unique and quite uncommon, particularly in sizes over 2 carats.  Attractive and scarce stone.
