Apatite is a very common mineral, but translucent and transparent gemstone-quality apatite is extremely rare.
Apatite is thought to be a stone of learning and inspiration. It is able to draw out negative energy and stimulate creativity.
Apatite expands knowledge and truth and eases sorrow, apathy, and anger. Physically, apatite aids in the absorption of calcium, helping cartilage, bones, and teeth; healing bones and encouraging the formation of new cells. It improves arthritis and joint problems.
