Apatite is a dual-action stone,
known for its positive use of personal power to achieve goals. It clears away confusion, apathy or negativity, then, stimulates the intellect to expand knowledge and truth, which may be used for personal growth or for the collective good. It is a Stone of Manifestation, promoting a humanitarian outlook and service to others. [Raphaell, 163][Melody, 126][Hall, 62]
Blue Apatite is a deeply spiritual stone with a cleansing influence on the aura, especially in the mental body – the vibratory level associated with psychic perception and paranormal abilities. It is a particularly strong stone to use in past-life or alternate-life work, because of its ability to access the energy levels where the Akashic records and an individual’s soul patterns exist. It is excellent as a dream stone for creative problem solving, and for vertical vision, where it is possible to see multiple levels of consciousness operating harmoniously and simultaneously. [Simmons, 41][Ahsian, 41]
Blue Apatite may be light, bright, or dark blue, sometimes within the same crystal. [Eason, 230] The name Apatite is derived from a Greek word meaning “to deceive” because the variety of colors and formations in which this stone occurs makes it easy to mistake for other minerals. It may be yellow, blue, green, brown, gray or colorless, but the Apatite stones used for metaphysical purposes are primarily higher-quality crystal pieces in blue, green and gold. [Simmons, 41]
Apatite is also the stone associated with animal conservation, because it is composed of the mineral phosphate that makes up the teeth and bones of all vertebrate animals, as well as their horns, antlers or tusks. [Eason, 230]
Blue Apatite is a motivational stone, promoting independence and ambitiousness. [Gienger, 15]
A stone of the Throat Chakra, Blue Apatite helps with public speaking and enhances group communication. [Hall, 63]Attuned to the Third Eye, it also improves concentration and memory skills, and is a good crystal for study purposes. It aids in time management when working on projects. [Eason, 230]
Blue Apatite is particularly supportive for business consultants, and account or investment managers. It is equally helpful in times of unemployment or a reduction in work hours to find alternative employment, and may be supportive of those forced into early retirement. [Eason, 230]
Blue Apatite can be used as a dream stone to access the subconscious for creative problem solving, as well as for exploring other lives and karmic patterns. [Ahsian, 42]
Apatite enhances creativity and awakens the finer, inner self. It is a stone of the future and brings knowledge to those attuned to it. It may be used as an interface point between consciousness and matter to translate our humanitarian aspirations into healing, information, communication and teaching. [Melody, 126]
Blue Apatite, when worn, carried, or used as an elixir, has successfully produced hunger suppression. [Melody, 126] It also helps alleviate fear associated with dental treatment. [Eason, 230]
