Aragonite is formed from Calcium carbonate (which is also what calcite is formed of). However, Aragonite forms orthorhombic crystals, unlike calcite. It is formed by biological and physical processes, including precipitation from marine and freshwater environments, which is... pretty cool.
This larger piece of Sputnik Aragonite is beautifully covered in rust orange/red crystals that leave it glimmering in any direction it is held. A perfect and unique gift or addition to any collection.
Aragonite is a reliable healing and grounding stone, useful in times of stress or bone ailing. It can help stabilize the Earth and Base Chakras, linking a better connection to the earth and past recall. Aragonite brings patience and acceptance, along with self-discipline. It can also help with dis-ease, nervous ticks and twitching/spasms, and stabilizes the mind/nervous system.
