is a group of phosphate minerals, usually referring to hydroxylapatite,
fluorapatite and chlorapatite, with high concentrations of OH−, F− and Cl− ions,
respectively, in the crystal. The colour is often shades of green, blue-green or
brown but apatite can also be colourless, yellow or violet. Apatite is one of a
few minerals that are produced and used by biological micro-environmental
systems and is the main component of tooth enamel and bone mineral. The hardness is 5 on the

have been faceted, and chatoyant specimens have been cabochon cut. Key sources
of apatite are Brazil, Burma and Mexico. Other sources are Canada,
Czech Republic, Germany, India, Madagascar, Mozambique, Norway, South Africa,
Spain, Sri Lanka and the United States. The apatite
that occurs in Sweden is almost exclusively
of calcium phosphate and calcium fluoride are present as assessoriskt mineral in

form large, well-formed crystals in passages of pegmatit.
