Apatite describes a group of similar isomorphous hexagonal phosphate minerals. The primary Apatite group includes Fluorapatite, Chlorapatite, and Hydroxylapatite. Apatite is the most common phosphate mineral, and is the main source of the phosphorus required by plants. The bones and teeth of most animals, including humans, are composed of calcium phosphate, which is the same material as Apatite.
These apatite earrings are stunning! In the sunlight, you may notice the slight glistening of rainbows. I am always a supporter of wearing minerals and rightfully so when many people have incorporated apatite into their daily lives to clear confusion and awaken their inner selves.
