Blue Apatite is a truly amazing crystal that is widely used in Crystal Healing and to create Gemstone Jewelry, as there are wonderful metaphysical properties associated with this Beautiful Blue Stone.
BLUE APATITE: Apatite stone is a calcium phosphate composed of three recognized species: chloropatite (containing chlore), fluorapatite (containing fluor) and hydroxyapatite (containing hydrogen).
Its name comes from the Greek word “apatan” meaning “cheating” or “to be wrong”. Apatite refers to the Greek mythology goddess called Apate. This minor goddess, daughter of Nyx, is the personification of dupery, fraud, deception and dishonesty. It is one of the evils of Pandora’s box.
This name was given by the German mineralogist Abraham gottlob Werner. The reason is that the apatite stone an easily be confused with other ores. It is often confused with beryl, tourmaline, topaz or olivine. It is only at the endof the 18th century that its chemical composition was established. There are Apatite mines in Germany, Burma, Brazil, Canada, France, Spain, the USA, Mexico, Madagascar, Mozambique, Norway, Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan
Metaphysically speaking, Apatite is a dual-action stone
known for its positive use of personal power to achieve goals. It clears away confusion, apathy or negativity, then, stimulates the intellect to expand knowledge and truth, which may be used for personal growth or for the collective good. It is a Stone of Manifestation, promoting a humanitarian outlook and service to others.
There is a luster to this stone. In fact, it seems to gleam and glow from within. The crystal has a luminous quality that houses an inner radiance and sparkle.
Apatite enhances creativity and awakens the finer, inner self. It is a stone of the future and brings knowledge to those attuned to it. It may be used as an interface point between consciousness and matter to translate our humanitarian aspirations into healing, information, communication and teaching. Blue Apatite, when worn, carried, or used as an elixir, has successfully produced hunger suppression.
Apatite increases motivation and builds up energy reserves. It helps overcome self-consciousness and alienation, and promotes openness and social ease. It is beneficial in easing sorrow and anger, and in reducing irritability and emotional exhaustion. Blue Apatite has an uplifting energy that raises spirits, encouraging a positive outlook and a hopeful attitude. Apatite helps eliminate over-activity, under-activity, blockages and congestion in all of the chakras. It is excellent for balancing yin-yang, and for raising kundalini energy. Blue Apatite stimulates the Third Eye and theThroat Chakras. The Brow Chakra, also called the Third Eye, is the center of our perception and command. It directs our sight and everyday awareness of the world. Our consciousness is located here, and we relate to ourselves through this chakra. It balances the important and the unimportant, sorting meaning from data and impressions. It commands the energy flow within the body. When the brow chakra is in balance we see clearly and understand what we see. We can interpret visual cues and our perception is high. Our thoughts and internal communications within ourselves are healthy and vibrant. We are open to new ideas, dreams, and visions. We can be quietly observant, and reflective. We can control the flow of energy within all the chakras.
The Throat Chakra is the voice of the body, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. In balance, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, we can bring our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release. Apatite is an aid to stimulating clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and awareness of the devic worlds. It can provide access to past-life insights and telepathy. [Melody, 126]
Moon rocks collected by astronauts during the Apollo program contain traces of apatite.  Following new insights about the presence of water in the moon,  re-analysis of these samples in 2010 revealed water trapped in the mineral as hydroxyl, leading to estimates of water on the lunar surface at a rate of at least 64 parts per billion – 100 times greater than previous estimates – and as high as 5 parts per million.  If the minimum amount of mineral-locked water was hypothetically converted to liquid, it would cover the Moon's surface in roughly one meter of water.
Discovered in 1786, Apatite was named after the ancient Greek goddess Apate. According to legend, Apate is the goddess of deceit.
Since Ancient times, Apatite like Lapis Lazuli has been grinder to make pigment that is used to create paint, make-up, dyes for clothing, inlay for Jewelry and Art just to name a few.
The apatite ore is the main source of phosphore and phosphate. This concentration makes the main ingredient for a lot of fertilizers and cleansers.
