The word apatite is derived from the Greek word for deceit, “apate” because apatite can be mistaken for many other minerals. Apatite forms under a wide variety of conditions and is found in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks.
Apatites are a group of similar isomorphous hexagonal phosphate minerals. Apatite is the most common phosphate mineral. Apatite is the main source of phosphorous, an important nutrient required by plants. Apatite has important applications in the chemical, farming, and pharmaceutical industries.
The primary Apatite group includes Fluorapatite, Chlorapatite, and Hydroxylapatite. The extended Apatite supergroup describes additional minerals like Pyromorphite, Mimetite, and Vanadinite. Apatites are commonly sold as “Apatite” without a designation of the specific type because its difficult to identify between the types. We can assume most of these stones are Fluorapatite, as it is the most common.

Apatites are incredible for overall health and make great stones for meditation or manifesting based on intention.
Golden Apatite + Atlantisite
This pairing is extremely powerful for balancing the Chakras and helping you become more confident in your self-expression. I recommend this pairing for empowerment to anyone who ready to step into their power. It's supportive of success in your manifestations.

I love this pairing for helping you embracing your spiritual gifts! I also recommend this pairing for support during a spiritual awakening. It will help keep you grounded when you feel lost. I created our custom pairing to sit on the Throat Chakra (when worn on one of our layering chokers) to help you intuitively find the right words to say.
