When Fluorapatite (Ca5(PO4)3F ) is reacted with H2SO4.


When Fluorapatite (Ca5(PO4)3F ) is reacted with H2SO4 one of the products is H4P2O7 what other products should I expect?
The context is the surface of Venus and how the apatite crystals in the basalts react with the sulfuric acid rain. So 9 atms and 900 degrees Celsius and supercritical CO2 might be involved.
Although the regular reaction would give me insight.

The other products are CaSO4 and HF ad water.

2 (Ca5(PO4)3F ) + 10H2SO4 => 10 CaSO4 + 3 H4P2O7 + 2 HF + 3 H2O
