    Me, too! It’s one of my favorite stones.

    I’m putting some into a wire-work necklace and was at the local bead store buying wire. The gal told me I needed 24 gauge and I would need to do bound loops instead of simple loops because of apatite’s brittleness. I’m glad she told me about that. Well, I have loops made on 4 of them. Only 36 more to go! lol
