The name apatite comes from the Greek word “apate,” meaning “to fool,” it's easy to confuse it for other stones such as tourmaline, peridot and beryl. Some believe apatite fosters communication, concentration, and brain power. Apatite comes in a variety of colors, ranging from yellow to green, white, brown, neon blue, brown or light purple. The more intense the color, the higher the cost of the apatite. The best stones will be almost a neon greenish blue with a clean clarity.
