Hiding behind these big "sabers", lol!

Interesting thread. The apatite will never throw off rainbows or show much dispersion no matter how well it’s cut. I find the same thing true of tourmaline, beryls, and peridot to name a few.

Now demantoid, sphene, sphalerite...

They put Diamond to shame, although dark colored diamonds like the Hope and mochas, greys, champagnes, can be extremely dispersive.

Good to know. No rainbows, no problem as long as I enjoy the colors.

Spring is here, and I love playing with the light through gemstones.

My spinel "circus ring" and zircon "ether medallion" (like from Zelda, due to its giant inclusion) at sunrise.

@T L, I keep coming back to see the chrysoberyls.

Does chrysoberyl often come with inclusions?

I feel that the color pops more against a white background, less so when against skintone...?

Some chrysoberyl can be hazy, or they can have chatoyancy (catseye), but for the most part, you can easily find clean material. It either comes in a more golden yellow to a greenish yellow.

The Tanzanian stone I wear always gets wow comments, and can be seen from far away. I have pasty pink skin.

Geez...didn't know Cuprian could do that too!

Oh, Tanzanian is a good reminder, have you heard about those from India?
