Avoid Saltwater 

Cleansing Blue Apatite with saltwater can be pretty harmful, especially towards unpolished, raw Apatite stones, and also crystals that have open and apparent cracks.

Immersing this stone in saltwater will eventually lessen the overall strength and weaken the overall structure of the stone by making it more susceptible to breakage and way more vulnerable.

The salt in the water will get into the stone’s fractures and also the invisible ones which will ultimately make the stone brittle and easily breakable. 

Do not use hot water

Hot water temperature is not suitable for Blue Apatite.

Always use lukewarm water to keep your stone safe from any damage or vulnerability caused by high water temperature.

In some extreme cases, hot water will leave visual marks that indicate strong damage such as a faded blue color or noticeable scratches and unusual marks all over the stone.
