GEMOLOGY
Apatite is commonly used as a gemstone. Transparent stones of clean color have been faceted, and cut into cabochon. Chatoyant stones are known as cat’s-eye apatite, transparent green stones are known as asparagus stone, and blue stones have been called moroxite. If crystals of rutile have grown in the crystal of apatite, in the right light the cut stone displays a cat’s-eye effect.
