Apatite Science Chemical Comp: Ca5(PO4)3(F,Cl,OH) Apatite is an ancient stone, formed when our Earth was still developing into the planet we know today. Apatite stones tested for age date back to the Mesoarchean period, or 3,200 - 2,800 million years ago. During this time period, life was just beginning on the dry surface of the Earth. Apatite is the main source of the phosphorus required by plants to live. In a way, we are made of Apatite. The Calcium Phosphate than comprises our teeth and bones are chemically the same as Apatite. Moon rocks collected by astronauts during the Apollo program contain traces of Apatite.
