Gemstone Lore: Apatite

I use apatite a lot in my jewelry designs. It is a beautiful crystal ranging in color from aqua to neon blue, and can be clear or opaque. Apatite is said to relieve arthritis and joint problems and reduce high blood pressure. It is supposed to stimulate creativity and mental activity, bringing unconditional love while raising self-esteem. Apatite increases motivation and builds up energy reserve. It also induces openness and social ease, encouraging extroversion and dissolving aloofness and alienation. Click on the title to see one my designs that incorporates apatite.
