Mineralogy of Angelite
Mineral Family: Sulfates
Chemical Composition: Ca[SO4]
Crystal System: Monoclinic
Form/Habit: Prismatic to tabular
Fracture: Very brittle
Luminescence: Yellowish-white (long wave) / Blueish-white (short wave)
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.
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.

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.
Earth to Pocket
Earth to Pocket is the Moonrise Crystal business mission. It’s the promise that any stones purchased here will be consciously sourced and the journey of the stone, from the Earth and into your Pocket, will be as transparent as possible.
These Angelites were mined in Peru and tumbled in the United States.
I discovered the Peruvian tumbling company at the 2015 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. I was looking for another vendor, that I had previously purchased from, when I ducked into their tent. When I saw their exceptional tumbled stones I was delighted. Unlike most tumbling companies, this one deals only in Peruvian exotics. Many of the stones they were selling were completely new to me! It has been fascinating to explore these new beauties and I look forward to seeing what new stones they bring out in the years to come!
It would be my pleasure to to hand-select a beautiful Angelite for you.
This price is for one stone.
You can buy a single Angelite or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Angelite measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and has a unique shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty.
The stone I choose for you will be smooth and free of chips and cracks, and a beautiful soft blue color with few or no markings. If you buy multiple stones, I will choose stones that look and feel particularly good together. Stones will be cleansed and smudged with sage before being shipped to you.
With their beautiful color and clean energies, these Angelites are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.
Safe Handling of Angelite
Angelites are fragile and can easily chip! Angelite has a thin layer of blue on their surface, underneath they are white and when chipped the white will show through. As a result, they should not be casually carried in a pocket or in a medicine bag. They are best kept as collectors pieces or on an altar, handling with care.
Angelite should NOT be used to make direct-infusion “Angelite Water” for drinking or bathing. Before making any direct-infusion elixir ALWAYS check the mineralogical properties of the stone to ensure it is not toxic. Only use fully tumbled stones or natural Quartz points in direct-infusion elixirs, never rough stones. When in doubt, make an indirect-infusion elixir instead.
Angelite should not be left in sunshine for extended periods of time because they will gradually lose their color. It is always considered a “best practice” to keep your stones and crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
Good To Know:
Angelite can be physically cleansed with a dusting cloth. These stones will gradually melt if left in water.
Angelite can be energetically cleansed using any method. They will appreciate being soaked in fresh water, set outside to absorb the moonlight, and/or being smudged with smoke or incense. Use your own intuition to determine the best method.
