In Greek, Apatow means “mistaken identity” – and apatite received this name as it is often confused with tourmaline.

Apatite helps one feel compassion and reinforces one’s inner peace. It helps balance the yin and yang.

It also helps develop super-sensual vision, hearing and perception.

It strengthens one’s intellect and creative ability, strengthens self-confidence and helps one feel empathy for others. It also improves one’s level of coordination and motor skills.

Apatite helps balance body weight - it is important to note that this does not necessarily mean that it causes weight loss, but rather that it helps bring the body to its optimal weight.
