Gemological info: Apatite belongs to a group of phosphate minerals with high concentrations of hydroxide, fluoride, and chloride ions. The name Apatite means “to be misleading” or “to deceive” and is named such because of its tendency to resemble other minerals. When cut correctly, these stones are bright, transparent to opaque, with intense colors. They have a hexagonal crystal system and will dissolve in hydrochloric acid.
Metaphysical Properties: It helps to increase self-confidence through enhancing learning, creativity, and imagination. Used during meditation, Apatite helps you let go of situations, people, and objects that have become useless in your life. It aids in getting you into a more profound state of reflection and meditation
