Anapaite is an iron-calcium phosphate mineral that crystallizes in the form of tabular crystals, bladed clusters, and in previously crystallized sedimentary rock cavities. Its color can range from various hues of green and can also be found white & colorless. Anapaite was first discovered in 1902 by Arthur Sachs who chose to name it after its type locality near the Black Sea in Anapa, Taman Peninsula, Russia. The most notable locations for Anapaite include Ukraine, Italy, Spain, Germany, and the USA.
Anapaite aligns with the lower chakras and aids in the activation of your physical energies to the world around you. This grounding effect is very popular among iron-bearing minerals and has a direct correlation to the energy produced within you daily. It becomes problematic when one begins each day with little to no fortitude, strength, and willpower to accomplish your true life purpose. This troubling pattern is a direct reminder of your lack of self-care and self-love. Eventually, this will lead to an innate spiritual desire to center yourself while rejuvenating your connection through nature, crystals, animals, and life itself.
Anapaite is a crystal that will remind you to continue living a life full of gratitude for Mother Earth while acknowledging and pushing past distractions that ultimately remove you from a path of growth. Now more than ever, it is easy to remove yourself from what is important to you and imbue yourself with the priorities of the ones around you. As this is normal and has become accepted within society, it truly is detrimental to your purpose here on earth. Staying grounded while believing in yourself with your most heartfelt emotions is the key to understanding who you are in hopes of being able to assist others along their spiritual journey.
