These natural yellow apatite beads have not been treated to enhance color or clarity in any way.

Apatite is a phosphate mineral found in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. The most prolific deposits of apatite are found in ancient marine and lakebed environments and consist of mineralized debris from water-dwelling organisms. Apatite gemstones can vary from translucent to opaque and with vivid green, yellow, and blue colors, depending on their chemical composition. It is commonly used as an index mineral because pure apatite is near a perfect five on the Mohs Hardness Scale.

Metaphysically, apatite is known as a stone of psychic activation and access to knowledge.  It enhances dreams, providing solutions from the subconscious to problems that previously seemed unsolvable. This glistening gemstone helps to clear confusion and frustration to the wearer, reduces irritability, and awakens the inner self.

Recommendations

For beads 4mm and smaller, it is recommended to start with stringing wires no larger than .013inch / .33mm. This will ensure a proper fit and in most cases allow for feeding of the wire tip back through the beads for a clean finish.

Elastic cords can be used with beads 4mm and larger, but it will not fit through most beads smaller than 4mm. It's recommended to use 0.5mm elastic cord.

These recommendations are intended to help guide you for a successful project. With time and experience you'll discover what works best for your designs.
