Green Apatite is a type of phosphate mineral with a beautiful, deep green color. It is most commonly found in Kenya, Madagascar, and Brazil. Green Apatite is said to be a stone of manifestation, helping to focus one’s intention and bringing forth ideas into reality. It has also been used as a gemstone and as an ornamental mineral.
Green Apatite is named for its chemical composition – it is made up of calcium phosphate. However, the term “apatite” comes from the Greek word for “deceit,” because this mineral can be easily confused with other more valuable minerals such as jade or emerald.
Despite its rather unassuming name, Green Apatite is a beautiful and versatile mineral that has been prized by humans for centuries.
