Apatite: Its uses as a mineral and gemstone

What is Apatite? Apatite is the name of a group of phosphate minerals with similar chemical compositions and physical properties. They are an important constituent of phosphorite, a rock mined for its phosphorus content and used to make fertilizers, acids, and chemicals. Apatite has a relatively consistent hardness and serves as the index mineral for a hardness of five in the Mohs Hardness Scale.

The main mineral in the phosphate rock is apatite, and most commonly, fluorapatite – Ca 5 (PO 4) 3 F or Ca 10 (PO 4) 6 (F,OH) 2. This is insoluble, so cannot directly be used as a fertiliser (unless in very acid soils) so must first be processed. This is normally in a wet process phosphoric acid (WPA) plant where it is first dissolved in ...

Jan 01, 1990· A process has been proposed for the treatment of apatite concentrate obtained from the dephosphorization of iron ore. In this process, the apatite is acidulated by HNO3 to produce high‐purity H3PO4. The crude acid obtained is shown to be at least equivalent to, if not better than, the typical wet‐process acid. The H3PO4 is purified by extraction and concentrated by evaporation. The spent ...
