Natural apatite is a group of phosphate minerals that are typically found in a variety of geological settings, including igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. The mineral is named after the Greek word "apate," meaning "deception," due to its wide range of colors and shapes, which can sometimes make it difficult to distinguish from other minerals.

Apatite can occur in a range of colors, including blue, green, yellow, brown, and pink. The color is determined by the presence of impurities within the crystal structure. Apatite is relatively hard and durable, with a Mohs hardness rating of 5 on the scale, making it suitable for use in jewelry.

Natural apatite has a wide range of applications beyond its use in jewelry. It is an important source of phosphate for fertilizer production and is also used in the manufacture of various chemicals, including hydrofluoric acid and phosphoric acid. In addition, apatite is used as a gemstone in its own right, with some of the most valuable specimens coming from Madagascar and Brazil.

Apatite is also used in some alternative healing practices, where it is believed to promote feelings of peace and tranquility. It is said to enhance creativity and self-expression, and to help clear mental fog and confusion. Apatite is sometimes used in meditation and is thought to have a calming effect on the mind and emotions.
