Mineralogy of Aragonite
Mineral Family: Carbonites
Chemical Composition: Ca[CO3]
Color: Yellow; can also be white, brown, gray, red, green, and blue
Crystal System: Orthorhombic
Form/Habit: Prismatic, acicular
Fracture: Subchonchoidal, brittle
Luminescence: Yellowish-white (long wave) / Blueish-white (short wave)
Transparency: Transparent to opaque
Location: Deposits of fine Aragonite crystals are found in the Czech Republic and Mexico. Additional deposits are located in Austria, Bahamas, England, Greece, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Japan, Morocco, Namibia, Peru, Pakistan, Russia, Scotland, Spain, Turkey, and the United States (Colorado, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and South Dakota).
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.

I purchased from this source a few times during the earlier years of my business. They sell a variety of polished stones from Peru, including tumbled stones. At first, the owner was never available while I was shopping. I spoke with various workers, but because of the language barrier I got conflicting information. It was obvious to me that the source was closely linked with a Copper mine, based on the minerals and location. Research online seemed to link this source with a tech company in Hong Kong that makes a mining app for large industrial mines. I decided that I wouldn’t do business with them again unless I met the owner and got clear information.
In 2019, I finally met the owner and happily he is bilingual. He shared stories with me about his father who owns a Copper mine. Most Copper mines are large industrial mines owned by multi-national corporations. I was surprised but pleased to hear that this is a family-run business.
