Apatite



Name:

The name apatite comes from the Greek word for deceive or cheat, which is apatao. Throughout history it has been called the deceitful or cheating stone because it is so easy to confuse it with other types of gemstones. While this is especially true in the cut stones used in jewellery, it is also true when it is in the raw crystal state as it has been mistaken for beryl and tourmaline.

Description:

Apatite Gemstone comes in a wide range of colours ranging from neon blue, colourless, purple, violet, pink, green, yellow and even red.

Like most other minerals, the colour depends on the additional minerals in the area where the apatite gemstone grows. The most in demand colour, the rich purple found in Maine at Mount Apatite. From Brazil we find the 2nd most sought after colour which is a brilliant blue colour. Recently a neon blue-green variety has been minded in Madagascar that is quickly gaining in popularity.
