When we talk about Apatite, Blue Apatite is one of the most fascinating, loved and mysterious of them all. This beautiful stone is popular for its metaphysical properties. It is considered a positive gem for improving communication and developing our spiritual insight.
Blue Apatite belongs to a group of phosphate minerals with similar physical properties and chemical compositions. It gets its name from the Greek word “Apatao” which means “deceit.” This name refers to how easy it was to be "deceived" by Apatite when it was discovered. It was confused with other stones such as sapphire, peridot, aquamarine or even turquoise. In addition, it was difficult to determine which mineral is which in the Apatite stone itself.
However, Blue Apatite gifts are the opposite to its name. This gemstone reminds us of pacific and clear seas and it is known as the Stone of Manifestation thanks to its ability of bringing mental clarity. Blue Apatite can show us the things that need to be improved so we can achieve our dreams. Blue Apatite is a relatively rare stone, but when you find it, its beauty is unmistakable. It is highly prized for its unique color ranging from bright opaque or translucent with a glassy luster.
Apatite stone can also be found in other colors as green, brown and yellow. Unlike other stones, ancient cultures didn’t use Apatite extensively. Only a few amulets and beads in the Middle-East and Africa were discovered from archaeological digs. The most important Blue Apatite deposits can be found in Canada, India, Brazil, Madagascar and Mexico.
