Healing Properties of Red Aragonite

Spiritual Red Aragonite gently moves us into balance and shows us how to find and keep our center.  It radiates good energy in all directions, cleaning and activating all the chakras, meridians, and our auric field.  Red Aragonite makes us feel spiritually healthy and empowered.  It helps us release any blocks that have gotten stuck inside us, keeping us small and struggling.  Red Aragonite helps us to expand our consciousness and shines Light into the Darkness.  It shows us what is real and good, and helps us to let go of any ugly lies we’ve been taught to believe.  During meditation and prayer, Red Aragonite helps us to feel safely grounded in the earth while easily communicating with higher spiritual planes.  Red Aragonite is attuned to all the Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Capricorn.  It is connected to the Elements of Earth and Storm and vibrates to the number 9.

Emotional:  Red Aragonite is a powerful crystal ally for emotional growth.  It gives us courage and patience to ‘do the work’ and to make whatever changes are necessary for our own peace and happiness.  It teaches us to live from that calm center within our own heart and to navigate through life using love as our compass.  Red Aragonite assists us in releasing attachment to the drama, anger, and sorrow of our past.  It helps us recognize that, yes we experienced that, but no we don’t need to carry it with us anymore.  Red Aragonite whispers confidently to us that it’s time to let go and allow ourselves to flourish as we stand in our true power.

Mental:  Red Aragonite teaches us to live with serenity, regardless of the struggles of the past, the challenges of the present, or the fears of the future.  Red Aragonite reminds us that we are quite capable of rising to the occasion and doing whatever needs to be done, so there’s no need to stress or worry.  It encourages us to let go of perfectionism, relentless criticism, and habitual negativity.  Red Aragonite helps us to be more mentally flexible and realistic.  It invites us to celebrate more and to honor our many successes.  It inspires us to teach others by our own good example.  Red Aragonite is a wonderful talisman for anyone who is going after a big dream and are actively working to become the person they always hoped they could be.

Physical:  Red Aragonite helps us to feel more comfortable within our physical body.  It is said to increase stamina and vitality, improve our immune system, and calm our nervous system.  It is commonly used to treat general aches and pains, particularly ones that are felt ‘deep’ in the body.  Metaphysical healers use it to heal broken bones as well as regenerate bone tissues and absorb calcium more completely.  It is used by yogis to keep the spine flexible and strong.  Red Aragonite is also said to help with Reynaud’s Disease and keeping hands and feet warm.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

aragonite mine locations

Mineral Family:  Aragonite is a Carbonate mineral.  Carbonates are an important part of the Earth’s crust and are found in sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks.  Carbonates are minerals which contain the carbonate group CO3 as their basic structural unit.  They form in a trigonal system with one carbon atom centrally located between 3 oxygen atoms.  While there are over 70 types of Carbonate minerals, the most common are Dolomite, Siderite, and Calcite.  Aragonite is a relatively rare stone which is chemically identical to Calcite.  It can be colorless, white, gray, brown, yellow, red, green, or blue.

Formation:  Aragonite is chemically identical to Calcite, but is formed under different geological conditions.  It is found in the oxidized zone of ore deposits, in caves as stalactites, near hot springs, and in mineral veins.  It is also produced in mollusks and Corals by biological processes that have yet to be fully understood.  It can form as dense masses, or as fine crystals that may be called ‘star clusters’ or ‘flowers’. 

Mining:  Aragonite is the principal mineral mined in multiple locations.  Among other uses, it is used to make cement and soil neutralizers, and to help maintain the pH balance in salt-water aquariums.

Enhancements:  All Aragonite is fully natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.

History of Aragonite

Castle at Molina de Aragón

Aragonite was “discovered” relatively recently by the metaphysical community and so it was not included in any early lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers.

Aragonite was named by German geologist Abraham Gottlob Werner in 1797, after the small town of Molina de Aragón (located in Guadalajara, Spain) where it was first noted.  Werner was one of the first scientists to recognize the chronological succession of sedimentary rocks, namely that newer rocks will be on top of older rocks.  Werner suffered from poor health for most of his life and rarely traveled.  However, he was an avid mineral and crystal collector and a famous geology lecturer, so unusual specimens were sometimes sent to him.  In addition to Aragonite, Werner also described and named Zoisite.

Replica of Sputnik

Fine Red Aragonite crystals are particularly prized by metaphysical collectors for their beautiful color/shape as well as their energy.  These crystals are most often called ‘Star Clusters’ or ‘Aragonite Flowers’ due to their unusual shape.  In Russia, and other areas formerly associated with the Soviet Union, Red Aragonite crystals may be called ‘Sputnik Crystals’, after the first man-made satellite to successful orbit the earth.  Sputnik orbited for almost 3 months in 1957, sparking the Cold War and the Space Race.
