Healing Properities of Angelite

Spiritual: Angelite has an exceptionally high vibration and is one of the best stones for compassion.  It sings of peace and helps us to see every person as a dear friend who deserves the very best.  Angelite encourages us to be involved in community-building, both accepting newcomers and strengthening existing bonds of affection.  It asks us to believe that community and world peace is possible and that each individual has a role to play.  Angelite heightens our communication skills and perception levels, both spiritually and in normal conversations.  In the spiritual realm, Angelite helps us to sense our guardian angels and to consciously communicate with the angelic realm.  It improves all forms of channeling and telepathic communication.  It also helps us to better understand astrology, numerology, tarot, and other spiritual tools.  Angelite is highly recommended for reiki practitioners and other spiritual healers who seek to be an instrument of peace.  Angelite is attuned to the Throat, Third Eye and Crown Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Aquarius. It is connected to the element of Wind and vibrates to the number 1.

Emotional: Angelite has a gentle yet strong vibration that brings immense tranquility.  It reduces anger and fear and increases our emotional intelligence.  It alleviates pain and confusion, especially when caused by acts of cruelty.  Angelite helps us to understand why cruel behavior happens and to have compassion for the person acting cruelly.  However, Angelite also helps us to understand the affect cruelty has on ourselves and others, and to protect the innocent and hold the right people accountable for their actions.  It encourages us to forgive, but not to be blind.  Angelite teaches us to cultivate true peace, rather than “keeping the peace” while allowing bad behavior to continue.  It is extremely helpful when dealing with narcissists or their enablers.  Angelite helps us to accept what can’t be changed, while also making sure that we are setting ourselves up for peace and success.  If we have been badly hurt, Angelite helps us to recognize those good people and healing activities that will restore our heart to peace.  

Mental: Angelite helps us to communicate in a clear and concise manner.  It is particularly good for diplomacy or when working in diverse groups.  It helps us to discuss issues calmly and rationally, while also taking into account the emotional needs of each person.  It is an exceptionally excellent stone to bring to peace talks and for problem-solving issues in our community.  Angelite is also a sweet stone for dream work.  It can help us remember and understand the hidden messages in our dreams, as well as to encourage lucid dreaming.  Angelite is a wonderful talisman for mathematicians and math students.  It helps us to understand symbols and abstract thoughts in a logical and consistent manner. 

Physical: Angelite is a very soothing stone when we feel anxious or depressed because of a serious injury or illness.  Angelite helps us to communicate about our feelings and to seek comfort in healthy ways.  It is especially good for people who tend to emotionally-eat and then struggle with weight-gain as a result.  Angelite validates our feelings and validates our need for appropriate comfort.  Angelite is recommended after chemotherapy or other major healthcare events, to help us trust in the healing processes meant to restore us to health.  It is also recommended when we have lost, temporarily or permanently, sensory perceptions such as sight or hearing and feel understandably scared or demoralized.  Angelite is a lovely talisman when we have broken bones or our joints are rigid from arthritis.  It encourages us to gently move and to slowly regain a greater range of motion.  Angelite asks us to trust in miracles and in modern medicine.  Most of all, Angelite asks us to trust in our own ability to adapt and find peace no matter what happens.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Location: The best Angelite deposits are found in Mexico and Peru. Additional deposits are located in Britain, Egypt, Germany, Libya, and Poland.

Mineral Family: Angelite is soft blue Anhydrite, which is a Sulfate mineral. Sulfates are a group of minerals whose crystal structure has four Oxygen atoms forming a square with a Sulfur atom in the center. There are approximately 200 types of Sulfates, with Gypsum and Baryte being very common and the rest being quite rare. One of these rare varieties is Anhydrite, which is essentially, Gypsum which has had all of the water leeched out of it. Anhydrite may be colorless, white, pink, blue, violet, brown, red, or grey. The pale blue variety is called Angelite.

Associated Minerals: Howlite

Formation: Angelite is blue Anhydrite, a type of mineral which is created when Gypsum loses water. Anhydrite is commonly found in evaporate deposits, especially salt deposits, where it forms in coarse crystalline blocks. Individual crystals are rare, and when found are typically tabular. While colorless and brown Anhydrite is fairly common, blue Anhydrite (Angelite) is much more rare.

Mining: Typically commercially mined in primary deposits at evaporation deposits, Anhydrite is used for fertilizers and as a drying agent in paints.

Enhancements: All Angelites on the market are natural, enhanced only through tumbling, cutting, and polishing.

History of Angelite

Angelite is a relatively “new” healing stone whose healing properties have only recently been explored. It was discovered in Peru in 1987 and its metaphysical properties were first explored later that year during the Harmonic Convergence, the world’s first globally synchronized meditation event.

The Supply Chain

The Supply Chain is short and clean.

The Mine, Lapidary and Export company are located in the same country.

 

 

The Mine

This Angelite is a byproduct of an industrial Anhydrite mine in Peru.  

The exact deposit is unknown, but Peru has some of the best safety standards for miners.

The Lapidary & Importer

This Angelite was polished in Lima, Peru and imported to the United States.    

The Importer is a family business with deep ties to Peruvian miners.

It was founded by an aunt in the USA and her nephew in Lima, Peru.

The Importer is eco-conscious and workers are paid fairly

Sourcing Relationship

I first spoke to the manager of the export company after finding them online in early 2017 and met the manager in person at the Denver Gem Show later that year.  I was cautious about doing business with them since they are the exporter, rather than the miners or tumblers.  But I studied their company and was pleased by their dedication to environmentalism.  They focus on exporting Fair Trade, Consciously-Made, and No-Harm Peruvian handicrafts.  They also have worked to reduce their carbon footprint in their wholesale warehouse.

In 2019, I had a long conversation with the manager about ethical topics in the stone industry.  She was willing to speak candidly about both the positives and the negatives.  She also shared how she personally struggled with the ethical issues and her part in the supply chain.  Whenever a shipment of goods arrives from Peru, she insists on smudging every box before it is brought into the factory.  The manager introduced me to the mother of the current owner.  A tiny woman, less than 5 ft tall, she was happy to reminisce with me about how she started the company more than 30 years ago.  She had been a young immigrant mother, searching for a new life.  Her nephew, back in Peru, shipped her a few buckets of Pyrite and asked her to see if she could sell them.  She laughed to remember those days and radiated happiness and gratitude.  Today, the business is run by her son and his cousin in Peru.
