Very pretty! I think I like that dark blue a lot more than the lighter, brighter blue.

I'm originally from the northeast and had no idea there were apatites to be had in Maine. Very cool.

Tres awesome! How was the mining experience? I knew there was Maine tourmaline, but had no idea Apetite was also local. Would you recommend self collecting at that mine?
