Apatite, the most abundant phosphate on Earth, is ubiquitous in the lithosphere and in vertebrates of the animal kingdom. Because it forms large colorful crystals, this toothsome mineral is among the most prized species populating mineral collections worldwide. Commonly confused with other minerals, Apatite takes its name from the Greek word άπατάω, meaning “to deceive.” This collector’s compendium explores in luscious color the science, history, localities and culture of Apatite — the Great Pretender.
