Apatite is a Seeker Buffer Crystal. Seeker Buffer crystals are used when one seeks to recenter themselves and to find a place of repose, and a place of balance.
When your life is out of sorts, and demands are coming in from all directions, you can be pushed far away from where you want to be. Use a Seeker Buffer crystal to insulate yourself from external demands, temper shocks, and add some emotional padding to your daily life.
Apatite is one of the natural birthstones for those born in mid spring (20 April - 20 May).
Apatite provides over-all healing properties and enhances the effects of other crystals. It is an excellent central stone in a healing crystal layout, or as the Heart Chakra crystal in a full chakra crystal healing.
Apatite utilizes Wood energy, the energy of growth, expansion, new beginnings, nourishment, and health. It enhances vitality, brings abundance, and keeps us growing physically. Use green crystals to enhance any space used for eating, in the room of a small child, or in a place of your home where you are beginning a new project. Wood energy is traditionally associated with the East and Southeast areas of a home or room. It is associated with the Family and Health area, and the Prosperity and Abundance area.
Apatite crystals help focus and enhance our early efforts to seek wisdom, lighting our path to understanding.
