Apatite History and Uses:

This mineral was often mistaken for Tourmaline, Olivine, Peridot, Topaz and Beryl and so it was named in 1786 by the German geologist Abraham Werner, from the Greek word ‘apatein’ which means to be deceptive.  Translucent gemstone quality Apatite is rare but it is found in a range of colours including, blue, green, yellow, violet, red, clear and a rutilated chatoyant form called cats eye.  Apatite is composed of calcium phosphate, the mineral which makes up both tooth enamel and bones in vertebrate animals. Some moon rocks collected by astronauts on the Appollo missions have been found to contain Apatite. It is used commercially as a fertiliser because of its high phosphate content and in explosives, fireworks, pesticides, toothpaste, detergents and pharmaceutical products.

Apatite Geological Description:
