Apatite is the term used to describe a group of calcium phosphate minerals with similar chemical compositions and physical properties. The word “Apatite” comes from the Greek word “Apate” which means “to deceit”, as it looks very similar to a number of other minerals. The most distinguishing factor of Apatite minerals is their softness on the Mohs Scale of 5. This is used as an index mineral to measure other minerals’ hardness in accordance with Apatite. It also dissolves in hydrochloric acid and this can be used to determine whether a mineral is Apatite or not. Its hexagonal crystal system is another determining factor. Apatite is very common across the globe and is the main source of phosphorus, extracted from huge deposits of Apatite-rich rock, to be used in plant fertilizers and different chemical products. Common individual members of the Apatite group are Fluorapatite, Chlorapatite, and Hydroxylapatite. Fluorapatite, with Fluorine dominant in its structure, is the primary source of Apatite gemstones and the most valued by mineral collectors. Well-formed hexagonal crystals with transparent clarity and vivid color will go on to being faceted. Blue, green, gold, violet, and deep red gemmy varieties are sought after. However, its softness makes this gem best used in necklaces and earrings as it is too dainty and brittle for everyday wear on the hands. Apatite comes in a variety of colors and is found in sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous environments. It is found throughout the world with noteworthy localities being Germany, Portugal, Russia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Morocco, Burma, Brazil, Mexico, Columbia, Canada, and the United States.
