Lee Downey Apatite Fire Buckle

Lee Downey & Samantha Silver Collaboration

,The overlay is hand-pierced and carved sterling silver, cut from a sheet of handmade silver. The stone is semi-precious blue apatite cut en cabochon, which beautifully demonstrates its chatoyant character. Chatoyant—taken from the French for “cat's eye"—refers to the stone's apparently fibrous internal structure; the cabochon cut reveals this incredible depth and texture while subtly contrasting it with the smooth surface it creates.
