Angelite: Stone of Awareness
Nature's Treasures Team
Angelite is a beautiful sky blue to lilac blue stone that is a relative newcomer to the world of crystals. It is translucent to opaque and has some white within. Occasionally, you may find some with red hematite flecks.
Angelite is also known as Blue Anhydrite, the name comes from the Greek word anhydrous meaning “without water”. Its chemical composition is CaSO4 and is an orthorhombic crystal. Many people confuse Angelite and Celestite, for good reason. They are both calcium sulfates and carry many of the same properties. Actually, Angelite is Celestite that was compressed for millions of years.
Angelite is a very soft stone registering 3 to 3.5 on the Moh’s scale. Since this is a very soft stone, please do not store it with harder stones. This stone cannot be exposed to water! If you do, it transforms into gypsum. You can use sage, singing bowls, chimes or a soft, dry cloth to clean it.
HISTORY & FOLKLORE
Angelite was discovered near Machu Picchu, Peru on the very eve of the 1987 Harmonic Convergence that was organized by Jose Arguellos. Some believe that star beings gifted Earth with Angelite at the time of the Convergence as a sign of the New Age. It was also thought it was a "Thank You" in exchange for humans organizing the first global peace meditation event. Thousands of people gathered at vortex locations across the world for a synchronized global meditation to experience the combined energies of peace, harmony and love.
Angelite is now also found in Britain, Egypt, Germany, Mexico, Libya and Poland.
