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.
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
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 Wernerin 1797, after the small town of Molina de Aragón, 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. But 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.

These Brown Aragonites were mined in Morocco and tumbled in the United States.
I originally found the US wholesale company while searching for a source for Black Tourmaline and Nephrite Jade. After making an initial purchase, I was immediately impressed by their quality. This company provides wonderful customer service and I often call them to ask questions about various minerals, or even to share with them things which I have learned! The combination of high quality stones, affordable prices, and knowledgeable staff makes me happy to do business with them.
It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Brown Aragonite for you.
This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Aragonite or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Aragonite measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and has a rounded shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty.
The stone I choose for you will be a visually-appealing pattern of dark and light tan bands. 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 pattern and clean energies, these Aragonites are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, use them in a crystal elixir, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.
