Apatite is a gemstone that is known for its ability to help individuals achieve their goals and to clear away negative energy. It is said to stimulate the intellect and to expand knowledge and understanding, which can be used for personal growth or for the benefit of others. This gemstone is also associated with manifestation and service to others, and is believed to promote a humanitarian outlook. Blue apatite is particularly powerful for spiritual purposes, as it is said to have a cleansing influence on the aura and to be particularly strong for past-life or alternate-life work. It is also said to be helpful for creative problem solving and for seeing multiple levels of consciousness simultaneously. Apatite comes in a variety of colors, including blue, green, and gold, and is often mistaken for other minerals due to its wide range of hues. It is also connected to animal conservation, as it is made up of the mineral phosphate that is found in the teeth and bones of all vertebrate animals.
