Healing Properties of Blue Apatite

Spiritual:  Blue Apatite is a merry stone that promotes a generous love of people and a desire to be of service to others.  It is a stone for happy inspiration and manifestation, and gives us both strength and hope to pursue our dreams, even when times are difficult and the path forward seems daunting.  Blue Apatite helps us to laugh more and dispel the darkness.  Blue Apatite can also help us to develop our natural psychic gifts including clairvoyance, clairaudiance, and clairsentience, and to communicate with other realms including the Fairy Kingdom and extraterrestrials.  Blue Apatite can also be used to help us become more aware of past lives and their effects on us today.  Blue Apatite actively encourages us to break any karmic ties that hold us back from living happily in this lifetime.  Blue Apatite is attuned to the Third Eye Chakra and links to the astrological sign of Gemini.  It is connected to the Elements of Wind, and vibrates to the number 9.

Emotional: Blue Apatite is one of the best stones to carry to encourage a love of life, easy friendships, and extroverted behavior.  It gives us merry permission to pursue our passions in all forms, and to ignore any socially proscribed guilt for doing so.  It is especially good for busy parents who might feel like they don’t deserve to have outside hobbies or interests.  Blue Apatite reminds us that a happy parent is a better parent, and that having our own life is good modeling for our children’s future.  It is also an excellent stone for workaholics who struggle to relax and enjoy leisure time.  Blue Apatite gently teases us until we stop taking ourselves so seriously and start enjoying life more.  If we are feeling apathetic or irritable, due to depression or overwork, Blue Apatite helps us to shift the balance.  In pushes us to do fun things and socialize, even if we don’t want to, because having a habit of pleasurable activities is obviously good for us! Blue Apatite encourages us to live outside of the box, to try new things and to be open to variety and spontaneity.  It invites us to be more adventurous in our relationships, both romantic and friendly.  

Mental: Blue Apatite helps us to concentrate on happy thoughts and not to dwell on past hardships.  It stimulates creativity and the intellect, helping us to find and understand Truth in all its forms. Blue Apatite makes a wonderful dream stone, encouraging lucid dreaming and dream recall.  It also aids in group communication and assists us in accurate self-expression. Blue Apatite is particularly supportive for anyone who is involved in social work, charity work, or has dedicated their life to public service. Blue Apatite instills in us a hope for a better future and a willingness to work hard and be part of the solution, rather than complaining about the problems. Blue Apatite clears away mental confusion so we can focus on whatever is most important. It encourages us to seek out people different than ourselves – good people who can help us grow and become more interesting in our own right.

Physical:  Blue Apatite is recommended whenever we need to examine and change our physical habits.  It is especially useful for anyone contemplating a diet in order to lose weight.  Blue Apatite reminds us that we don’t need to obsessively track every little thing, but we do need to think about our choices in general and whether or not they support our goals.  If the goal is to lose weight and keep it off, then we need to make reasonable lifestyle changes, rather than following a diet for a little while and then returning to our old habits.  Blue Apatite helps us to compassionately examine the emotional reasoning that leads to self-sabotage and supports us in creating a happier future.  Blue Apatite is also a great talisman for anything to do with the skeletal system or cartilage.  It encourages us to improve our posture and to take good care of our joints.  It is also a excellent talisman for anyone who works on a computer all day and needs a reminder to give our eyes a break from staring at screens and to get up and move around regularly.  

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Location:  Apatite deposits are located in Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, India, Kenya, Madagascar, Mexico, Mozambique, Myanmar, Namibia, Norway, Portugal, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, and the United States (most notably Maine, but also California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, and Utah).

Mineral Family:  The name Apatite actually refers to a group of minerals, all of which belong to the phosphate family.  Phosphate minerals all contain Phosphorus and Oxygen in a 1:4 ratio (written as PO4), which are then combined with various other elements to create unique minerals.  Other famous phosphate minerals include Lazulite, Turquoise and Variscite.  The name Apatite is commonly used for several types of minerals which come in a wide range of colors, and as such Apatite may be considered the most common of all Phosphate minerals.  Apatite is actually composed of the same materials that form animal and human bones and teeth.  The most beautiful Apatite mineral and gemstone, and the type most desired by collectors, is Fluorapatite, which combines Phosphorus and Oxygen with a Fluoride source.  

Associated Minerals: Calcite, Diopside, Feldspar, Magnetite, Muscovite, and Quartz

Formation:  Apatite typically forms well-shaped hexagonal crystals, but may also grow tabular or columnar crystals, or in huge beds of massive material.  Apatite may occur alongside fossils and associated sediments, as well as in a wide range of igneous rocks.  Most gem-quality and collectors stones are found in pegmatites.  NASA’s Apollo program also found traces of Apatite in some moon rocks.  

Mining:  Apatite is most often mined in massive bedded marine deposits which are mined for phosphorus to be used in fertilizers.  Because Apatite occasionally contains ‘rare earth minerals’, it may also be specifically mined as ore for these rare elements, since, unlike most rare earth ores, Apatite is non-radioactive and does not pose an environmental hazard.  Apatite may also be found as an accessory gem in a large range of mining environments, ranging from huge open pits to small mines operated by hand. 

Oleney Ruchey Apatite Mine, Kola Peninsula, Russia. The Apatite in this mine will be used to make plant fertilizers.

Enhancements:  Synthetic Apatites have been created in laboratories.  However, all tumbled Apatites are almost certain to be fully natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.

Synonyms:  Asparagus Stone, Asparagolite, Augustite, Chlorapatite, Fluoraptite, Hydroxlapatite, Phosphorus of Lime, and Sombrerite

History of Apatite

Apatite is a relatively new stone for the metaphysical community, and as such was not included in any of the ancient or medieval lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers. It may, however, be included in many of the newest lapidaries.  The most famous form of Apatite is the blue gemstone variety.  

hand-fertilizerApatite is easily confused with other minerals, especially Beryls, such as Aquamarine and Emerald, as well as various shades of Calcite.  In fact, Apatite’s name comes from the Greek word apatao, meaning “to delude” precisely because of this confusion!  Apatite was first defined as a distinct mineral in 1786, but today the name ‘Apatite is used to describe an entire group of phosphate minerals, which come in a wide range of colors  Apatite crystals are the primary source for the phosphate used to create plant fertilizers, and is widely use by chemical and pharmaceutical companies.

Sourcing Relationship

I first met the owner of the Hong Kong tumbling company at the 2014 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show.  A language barrier coupled with the quick pace of the gem show, makes it difficult to discuss sensitive or complicated topics.  Every year I speak with the owner, often asking questions about the same stones, but getting slightly different answers.  The communication problem makes me highly selective about which stones I will buy from her.  If the stone is from mainland China, and I can independently determine its likely mining origin, I will buy it since short supply chains are important.  If a stone is from another country, I am more cautious.
