With the most breath taking blue color, Blue Apatite is every crystal lovers dream! As apatite comes in many different colors, blue in my opinion is the most eye catching, it also has metaphysical properties to help in any corner of your life.



History

Blue apatite crystal falls into the category of phosphate minerals and was first named in 1786 by a German geologist. In the 1800s however, it was discovered that the original stone had been incorrectly classified, and the record was set straight. The word “apatite” is derived from the Greek word exapatὀ (or apatao), which means “to deceive”. This is thought to have originated from the fact that apatite has often been confused with other gemstones, such as Paraiba tourmaline. 



Composition and Formation

Apatite is a mineral that is composed of calcium phosphate. Apatite is a relatively common mineral that can occur in a variety of colors, including yellow, green, blue, and purple. It is an important mineral in the formation of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks, and it can also be found in biological tissues such as bones and teeth. Due to its chemical and physical properties, apatite has various industrial applications, including in the production of fertilizers, phosphoric acid, and dental materials.


Apatite can form in numerous ways including, igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic processes. Heres some examples!


Igneous : Apatite can crystallize from magmas or melts that are rich in calcium and phosphorus.


Sedimentary: Apatite can be precipitated from aqueous solutions in sedimentary environments. This occurs when phosphate ions in solution react with calcium ions to form apatite crystals.


Metamorphic:  Apatite can be formed through metamorphism, which occurs when rocks are subjected to high temperatures and pressures. During metamorphism, apatite can be recrystallized or transformed into different mineral phases, depending on the conditions of metamorphism.
