Blue Apatite: Stone of Connection

Apatite is a stone composed of, mostly, phosphate minerals. Apatite gets its name from the Greek word “apate” which means “to deceive”. Apatite was given this name because, over time, it has been consistently confused with a multitude of other minerals. The most notable of Apatite deposits are found in Mexico, Canada, Brazil, Germany, and Russia. Apatite has a hardness of 5 and is calcium phosphate mineral. There are many colors of Apatite, though the most common color tends to be translucent green. Today, however, we will focus on the rarer, Blue Apatite.

This stone focuses on the cohesion of several layers of energy. It works on you physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. In addition, it also connects us to ourselves on multiple dimensions. Apatite helps us to reconnect to our higher selves so that all aspects work harmoniously. On a chakra level, Blue Apatite is of the wind element and is associated with both the throat and third eye chakras. It is a great overall cleanser for the physical, mental, and auric fields.

Known for stimulating the third eye and increasing its energy and clarity, this stone makes for a great mineral when trying to increase one’s channeling or intuitive capabilities. For those interested in lucid dreaming, Blue Apatite paired with a Herkimer Diamond would be the ultimate boost. Apatite is very versatile as it works to reduce irritability and creates a feeling of clarity, peaceful relaxation, and connectedness. It is best cleansed with energy healing, smudge, or water and charged on a cluster.
