There has been no production of this classic Malagasy ‘neon’ Apatite for years. This stone was cut from an old piece of rough that we set aside over a decade ago. While the color is heated, it remains the standard for these vivid Apatites; there are some Brazilian stones as well but they never seem to match the clarity and, in particular, the size possible from Malagasy stones. Very large and choice piece.
