Healing Properities of Angelite

Spiritual: Angelite has an exceptionally high vibration and is one of the best stones to help develop greater levels of compassion. It helps us consciously communicate with the angelic realm and safely travel out-of-body. It encourages us to speak our truth and to be accepting of what cannot be changed. 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 is a stone of peace and brotherhood. It alleviates pain and confusion, especially when caused by acts of cruelty. Holding an Angelite helps us to better receive love and guidance from those who have our best interest at heart.

Mental: Angelite helps us to communicate in a clear and concise manner, and is particularly good for diplomacy or when working in groups. It makes an excellent “dreaming stone,” and can be used to help us remain lucid while sleeping, as well as to remember and interpret our dreams when we awaken.  

Physical: Angelite is a very soothing stone, said to be an excellent choice for helping treat depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. It is also said to aid in weight control, especially when emotional issues are playing a role.  Metaphysical healers commonly use Angelite to treat sore throats as well as the physical heart.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

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.

Synonym: Blue Anhydrite

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 theHarmonic Convergence, the world’s first globally synchronized meditation event.

This Angelite was polished in Lima, Peru.    

The business is owned by a pair of brothers, one manages the mine, while the other manages the lapidary.

Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly.

The business is also the direct-importer & sells exclusively at large gem shows.

Sourcing Relationship

I first met the owner of the mine and lapidary in 2014 at the Gem and Mineral Show in Tucson, Arizona.  At that time, he was set up with a single table and the only major Gem Show he attended was in Tucson.  While most lapidaries sell their tumbled stone in pre-packaged bags by the pound or kilo, this seller allowed me to cherry pick through his stock and buy only the best.  Since then, his spot in Tucson has expanded to four tables under a tent and he now sells at two of the major European shows.  It has been fun to watch our businesses grow.     

In 2018, I asked the owner if he would be willing to help connect me with a rural school in Peru near his mine.  I told him that I wanted to “give back” to the communities that provided these beautiful crystals.  He was pleased by my request and later that year introduced me to the principle of a suitable Peruvian school.  We hope to begin supporting this school in the 2020-2021 school year.
