Interesting Facts

Apatite is found in a variety of locations worldwide which includes Russia, Canada, Mexico, Spain and Africa. Apatite is the mineral that makes up the teeth in all vertebrate animals as well as their bones. No other mineral is so personally involved in man as is apatite. Virtually all the phosphorus in the world today has either come from or is locked up in this one mineral--apatite or what is called phosphate rock. It is quarried for use as a phosphate fertilizer. Most of our teeth and most of our bones are apatite or an apatite-like mineral, and is an elemental component of every living cell, plant and animal. In the ancient and medieval world apatite was believed to enhance one's insight, learning abilities and creativity, and to give increased self-confidence. It was also believed useful in inducing deep states of meditation. Athletes and soldiers believed it useful in helping improve their coordination and to strengthen muscles, and to help suppress hunger and ease hypertension.
