Wabi Sabi 015
A stunning 0.42 carat electric-blue Apatite faceted by artist John Bailey in his design titled "12-6" and installed in a naturally-textured Obsidian nodule collected in Northern Nevada.
Apatite defines hardness 5 on the Mohs scale. Apatite found on the moon revealed 100 X more water than thought. A gem of truth, clarity, revelation, and inspiration, wearing it is thought to enhance perception.
Obsidian (volcanic glass) is Earth’s inner fire come to our realm – conveying the resilience to move through fire, to transform, and bestow both beauty and utility. Cultures the world over have used and recognized it for millennia.
