Phosphates
Group of minerals that are compounds of one or more metallic elements associated with the phosphate radical (PO4). The phosphates are classified together with the arsenates and vanadates. Many phosphates are heavy, and none are hard. They are often brittle and are frequent in compact aggregates.



Apatite is an Important Member of the Phosphates
