The word “apatite” is derived from the Greek word exapato (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. People have found that it helps with motivation, ambition, self-confidence and self-acceptance. In general, blue gemstones are associated with the mind’s connection to the spiritual world. This doesn’t necessarily mean any kind of organized religion, but rather an opening of your mind and heart, which allows you to access your authentic self.
It has also been associated with psychic perception and the ability to access the realm of the paranormal... and sometimes even being an aid to those doing past-life work. This ability in turn promotes creativity, as it enables people to get in touch with parts of their spirit and the mental world that were previously forgotten. Many people use apatite stones to help them understand their inner world better and assess their needs, wants and the issues they’re facing.
On top of these metaphysical and spiritual benefits, apatite crystals can be used to enhance physical health as well. It may come as a shock, but one type of apatite as a biological mineral is found in our teeth and bones.
As such, it’s no surprise that the apatite crystal holds physical benefits... people have used it to suppress hunger and boost their metabolism. Some have also found it very useful for promoting the healing of bones, teeth and cartilage. Blue apatite is associated with the throat chakra, also called Vishuddha Chakra. The throat chakra, of course, has a connection with the color blue, and is mainly linked to our communication abilities. Using blue apatite can unblock the throat chakra, which makes it easier to communicate and express oneself in other ways. The signs of a blocked throat chakra can include feelings of social anxiety and shyness, difficulty expressing yourself and insecurity – definitely things we want to avoid!
