Named in 1860 by Carl F. Rammelsberg from the Greek απατείν ("apatein"), "to deceive" or "to be misleading", as Apatite was often confused with other minerals (e.g. Beryl, Milarite), plus the "chlor-" prefix for chlorine being a dominant anion.
Apatite Group. The chlorine analogue of fluorapatite and hydroxylapatite. The phosphate analogue of turneaureite. The Ca5 analogue of phosphohedyphane. The calcium analogue of alforsite.
