Humanitarian Stone

Named for the Greek word meaning ‘deception’, Apatite’s chemical composition almost imitates many other stones.  Apatite comes in many forms and colors, and is easily confused with half a dozen other minerals, most commonly confused with Fluorite and Aquamarine.

Found in transparent, translucent, and opaque forms. Varies in color from white to brown to green to yellow and even violet; although it’s most common color is a lovely yellow/green/teal.  Its crystal form is hexagonal and glassy in appearance. It has also been found in chatoyant form called “Asparagus Stone” in a yellow/green color.

 

Apatite Scientific Properties

Mohs Hardness of 5 with a hexagonal crystal structure.

When cut correctly, Apatite stones are bright with strong colors, transparent to opaque. It is rarely faceted though, due to its low rate on the Mohs scale. Apatite has been found as colorless, yellow, teal, blue, violet, and green hexagonal prisms and tabular crystals. Most often beads that are crafted from Apatite are the most brilliant teal coloring which resembles the sea, and is generally the most popular on the market.

Apatite is an abundant mineral found in many types of rock, but most gem quality material is associated in Pegmatites.

 

Apatite Mystical Properties

 

Said to enhance one’s insight, imagination, creativity, and learning abilities, which will in turn bestow increased self-confidence.  Stimulating the intellect and promoting the realization that one’s strength of will comes not only from spiritual avenues, but must also be derived of love as well.  When this realization comes about, one begins to feel negativity and aloofness dissolving away.

When applied with a spiritual discipline and meditation, Apatite creates a willingness to let go of people, objects, and situations that have become useless in one’s life. Apatite is said to assist in restoring a clearer thought process, which in turn increases a deeper state of meditation and reflection.

Continued use of Apatite enhances psychic abilities, balances the yin-yang energies, assists in the rising of Kundalini energy, openness to the higher self, and producing a spiritual state of unconditional love.  When these attributes are developed, that is when Apatite becomes a “humanitarian” stone.

Aqua blue Apatite helps one to connect to a very high level of spiritual guidance that is not easily attained. It is said to heal the heart as well as emotional disease, and can assist in letting go of things in life that are bothersome or no longer necessary.

For this purpose, one should hold a piece of Apatite and begin meditative state. Once the correct state is attained, visualize the person, problem or particular item, and begin to envision it being pushed or moved further and further away in whatever manner works best.  Practice this meditation once each day for seven continuous days. At the end of the seven days, there will be a change of location or a better control of the emotions that once created a tie to the inappropriate or necessary person, problem, or item.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
