APATITE AS A SEMI-PRECIOUS STONE

Apatite is a calcium phosphate mineral, usually referring to hydroxylapatite, fluorapatite and chlorapatite. Apatite has a hardness of 5 in the Mohs Hardness Scale. The mineral was named apatite by the German geologist Abraham Gottlob Werner in 1786. However, as Apatite’s chemical composition almost imitates the chemical composition of many other stones, it was often mistaken for other minerals. Hence it was also named for the Greek word ‘apatao’, which means to deceive.

It is usually teal in color, but can be yellow, brown, blue, purple, pink, or colorless. These colors are often so vivid that apatite has frequently been cut as a gemstone. It comes in many forms, and it is often confused with many other minerals, such as Fluorite and Aquamarine gemstones. Apatite in teal color resembles the color of the sea, which is the most popular type among buyers and collectors.
