The word Apatite in Greek means "cheat". It was originally named this way because this stone can so easily be confused with amblygonite, andalusite, brazilianite, precious beryl, sphene, topaz and tourmaline. As this is a fairly soft stone, it can be difficult to facet.

Mohs' Hardness Scale: 5

Apatite (blue) represents the throat chakra, which is positioned at the base of the throat. It controls the throat, neck, arms and hands. Apatite helps one through difficult and emotional situations by helping maintain focus. It brings a sense of harmony so that one may think clearly and effectively communicate their feelings. Apatite resonates with the astrological signs Gemini and Libra.
