If crystals of rutile have grown in the crystal of apatite, in the right light the cut stone displays a cat's-eye effect. Major sources for gem apatite are Brazil, Myanmar, and Mexico. Other sources include Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, India, Madagascar, Mozambique, Norway, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, and the United States.
Apatite is the chief phosphate mineral (calcium phosphate associated with fluoride, chloride, or hydroxyl ions), large deposits of which are found in the Kola peninsula, Russia, North Africa, and Montana and Florida. It is found in igneous rocks and sedimentary deposits.

and human food chain. 5,6 Apatite is the dominant mineral in phosphate ores. It may occur as carbonate-fluorapatite [Ca 5 (PO 4, CO 3) 3 (OH, F)] in sedimentary rocks and as hydroxyl-fluorapatite [Ca 5 (PO4) 3 (OH)] in igneous rocks. Apatite is commonly very insoluble in its original state as North Africa 15 60 105 6 0.05 33 300 Middle East
Apatite was not used extensively in the ancient world with only a few beads and amulets discovered over the years from archaeological digs in the Middle-East and in Africa but its modern history began in 1786 when it was studied and named by German geologist, Gottlob Werner.
A typical locality is in a roadcut on County H, 1 mile north of the Chippewa River near Caryville (W.S. Cordua field notes). FLORENCE COUNTY: Apatite forms tan to light brown nodules up to 3 meters in diameter with rims of lithiophyllite and fillowite in a zoned lithium-rich pegmatite “in Florence County” (Falster, Simmons and Moore, 1988).

As a mineral resource, “phosphate rock” is defined as unprocessed ore and processed concentrates that contain some form of apatite, a group of calcium phosphate minerals that is the primary source for phosphorus in phosphate fertilizers, which are vital to agriculture.

leaching. Phosphate leached from guano phosphatizes the underlying rocks in some areas, forming apatite where the host rock is limestone and forming aluminum- or aluminum-iron-phosphate minerals where the underlying rock is a silicate. Individual deposits of both igneous apatite and marine phos
Diabase (/ ˈ d aɪ. ə b eɪ s /) or dolerite or microgabbro is a mafic, holocrystalline, subvolcanic rock equivalent to volcanic basalt or plutonic gabbro. Diabase dikes and sills are typically shallow intrusive bodies and often exhibit fine grained to aphanitic chilled
Apatite in Sri Lanka is mined from Eppawala (Eppawala Rock Phosphate or ERP). The finely ground product is used as a direct application fertilizer for tea, rubber and coconut. ERP is an indiscriminate mixture of more soluble primary crystals and a less soluble secondary phosphate matrix rich in ferruginous and aluminous compounds with an average P2O5 content of 30%.
Apatite is found in a wide variety of rock types. Igneous rocks are usually characterized by F and OH varieties, some containing Mn. Apatite occurs in pegmatites, hydrothermal veins and cavities, metamorphic rocks, and as detrital grains in sedimentary rocks and phosphate beds. Inclusions Healed fractures, hollow growth tubes.

Phosphate rock is the main source of phosphorous which is essential to all forms of life. It is a key component of DNA, it is used in the control of energy transfer and storage at the cellular level as well as playing an important role in metabolic processes.
The Phalaborwa Complex (RSA) The history: The Arabs and possibly even the Phoenicians before them, traded for slaves, gold, ivory and copper in Africa. Dr. Hans Merensky started an intensive prospecting on Loolekop to establish the existence of economic deposits of apatite in the foskorite rock.
