Healing Crystal Apatite Stone
In geology, “deceptions “It is customary to call the rocks imitating metal nuggets. However, the real geological “deceiver” is apatite – and not only because his name in Greek means just a strong inclination to deceive. Calcium phosphate, being a part of this mineral in close connection with molecular calcium, forms geometrically corrects formations, capable of intensive growth, and resembling expensive crystals of precious stones. Drushes of apatite can reach multi-meter sizes and masses of several hundred kilograms! However, not all mineral concretions are equally good. The jewelry is of small crystals of transparent apatite. And only not many of them are endowed with sufficient purity to get into the skilful hands of the cutter.
Three faces of apatite
In modern science, there are three varieties of this mineral: flour apatite, chlorapatite, hydroapatite. Three varieties do not mean only three variants of “appearance”: apatite has so many variations on the theme of transparency and chromaticity that in the past even observant minerologists easily misled the nature of the stone. The impurities of macro- and microelements, heavy metals, non-metallic compounds radically change the face of the stone. Unbelievably beautiful transparent crystals of light violet or pink color. However, much more common formations of green and blue shades. The cut crystals of apatite are very reminiscent of beryl, tourmaline and even thick-green diopside. Not too great hardness of the mineral – the first difference of the deceptive gem fromother precious stones.
Apatity in the world
Industrial extraction (and, together with it, selection of jewelry crystals) apatite is conducted in the north of Russia and in Finland (blue stone); in Norway (moroxites of the color of the sea wave). Green stones come from the shores of the Indian Ocean and from Canada. Yellow and brown stones are mined on the American continent. Violet and colorless apatites – comes from Europe. Relatively recently discovered deposits of pink apatites – in the Pamirs and Transbaikalia.
Effects on humans
Apatite is a stone that works best in combination with other minerals. If yellow and brownish crystals activate the work of the heart, blue apatite, combined with aquamarine, helps lecturers and singers. The overall harmonization of the physical and mental state of the body goes faster if a person wears intensely colored blue apatites with rock crystal or diamonds. Green apatites contribute to the development of an optimistic outlook on life. Mixing green and blue in the color of the crystal means that this stone is useful to a person in need of periodic pacification and comfort. In black magic, apatite is not used, because it is basically impossible to harm a person.
The magical power of a mineral
Preventing life shocks – that’s what the owner of apatite jewelry can count on. This stone casts prophetic dreams, mobilizes foresight, and strengthens the intuitive awareness of danger. When wearing it, the mineral manifests itself in completely physical ways. When the danger is thickened, the skin in the place of contact with the stone is irritated, it itches, it turns red. The appearance of a desire to remove ornamentation from apatite is the correct evaluation criterion of a sharp increase in the threatening danger. However, one should not part with a faithful servant: Apatite is so deeply rooted in the nature of man that after losing from the master loses its visual merits, and from the precious stone often turns into a dull shining fragment of the rock.
Interaction with the signs of the zodiac
Signs of Fire (Lions, Sagittarius and Aries) can wear apatite with confidence in the benefits of contact. But Pisces stone is contraindicated: its soothing effect makes Pisces drowsy. It should, however, be borne in mind that the effectiveness of a stone depends on its naturalness. Changes in color and structure occurring after heating, digestion in an active medium, sizing and other methods of “refinement”, taken from masters of southern countries, reduce the effectiveness of apatite.
