Chlorapatite

Formula:
Ca5(PO4)3Cl
Colour:
White
Lustre:
Sub-Vitreous, Resinous, Dull
Hardness:
5
Specific Gravity:
3.17 - 3.18
Crystal System:
Hexagonal
Name:
Name introduced in 1860 by Carl F. Rammelsberg, in his Handbuch der Mineralchemie. Here he reviewed some analysis of apatites, and found that apatite may have fluor(F) or chloride (Cl) as the dominant anion. An analysis of apatite from Kragerø, Norway (cited after Völker) showed 4.10 wt % Cl, and was named as chlorapatite. The name is made of the prefix, chlor, for the dominant chlorine and the greek ἀπατάω (apatao), to deceive, as apatite was often confused with other minerals (e.g. beryl, milarite).
A chlorine-rich calcium phosphate that belongs to the apatite group. It is the chlorine analogue of fluorapatite and hydroxylapatite, the phosphate analogue of turneaureite, the Ca5 analogue of phosphohedyphane and the calcium analogue of alforsite.
Chlorapatite is formed in fluor-deficient environments, and found in calcium silicate marbles, in layered mafic intrusions and in diabases. It is known to replace triphylite in some granite pegmatites (Ptáček 2016). A monoclinic polymorph, chlorapatite-M is known.
