General Info:

Apatite was named in 1786 by German geologist Abraham Gottlob Werner (1749-1817), teacher of mineralogy and mining at the Freiberg Mining Academy, Germany. Werner named the mineral from the Greek word άπατάω (Epstein) meaning to deceive or even to be misleading because it was often confused along with other minerals such as Peridot and Beryl. The mineral that is specific Werner had described as Apatite was reclassified in 1860 as Fluor-apatite by the German mineralogist Karl Friedrich August Rammelsberg (1813-1899). Rammelsberg included the “Fluor-” prefix in allusion to the dominance of fluorine (F) within the composition. In 2008 Fluorapatite was renamed CaF that is apatite an article entitled “Tidying up Mineral Names: an IMA-CNMNC Scheme for Suffixes, Hyphens and Diacritical Marks” into the Mineralogical Record, vol. 39, no. 2 (March–April 2008), page 132, but this true name ended up being then reversed and renamed Fluorapatite by the IMA this season. Despite the renaming and naming, it is still many often called Apatite.
