Blue apatite works on the mental body to enhance our ability to connect to spiritual dimensions and entities and receive inspiration, insight, and guidance. It is useful for working with the Akashic records, past life memories, astral travel, and dreamwork, including lucid dreaming.
More than just accessing knowledge, apatite helps us use this knowledge to transform patterns in our current life.

Through activating the third eye chakra, it brings insight into our current issues and inspiration to solve them.
Apatite is generally stimulating to the mind, supporting clarity and optimal mental functioning. It carries an uplifting energy that helps us feel confident that we can resolve our problems, change our habits, and create a life that is balanced, wholesome, and fulfilling.

You can also carry or wear it as a talisman if you anticipating needing clarity and vision to help you make the best decisions and navigate situations where you need to stay clear-headed and unemotional.
Apatite Mineral & Gemstone Information
Chemically, apatite is calcium phosphate, which is the same mineral that makes up bones and tooth enamel. It is primarily used industrially as a source of phosphorus for fertilizer. Only a small amount of apatite is used in jewelry or sold as gemstones, as most apatite is not found in large enough pieces.
Apatite is soft and can be brittle, so in jewelry the setting is important–it is usually too soft to be faceted, and is best worn in pieces that don’t get a lot of wear and tear. In evaluating cost, intense colored stones tend to be more expensive.
