Apatite is a calcium phosphate, the major source of phosphorous. The name is from the Greek apate, meaning “deceit,” because apatite resembles other minerals such as amethyst, aquamarine and olivine. Apatite ranges from green to blue to golden yellow, as well as purple, white, colorless and rose-red. Fine specimens come from Mexico, Russia, Brazil, and the USA. Metaphysically, apatite is used for humanitarianism and builds energy.
