Agate aura

Agate aura is a new twist on something that has been around literally for millions of years. Traditional Agate nodules have been sliced and polished to a high sheen and then molecularly bonded with pure silver and other precious metals. This gives the geodes a strong rainbow iridescence.

Many lightworkers and healers are drawn to this crystal of the new age because Agate provides a gentle stability, grounding us and connecting us to the Earth. Agate’s balancing energy is highly compatible with crystals of all kinds.

Naturally the original properties of the base Geode nodule being mainly quartz still releases positive energy. It can clear, balance and strengthen all chakras and your entire body. Its presence encourages mental clarity and wellbeing and boosts the immune system.

Blue Aragonite is the more colourful version of the traditional brown / red aragonite. Indeed, it shares the same transformative and chakra balancing properties as regular Aragonite. However, the blue version unsurprisingly like all blue stones adds the ability to calm and soothe an emotional body. Just holding a piece of blue aragonite will transfer a sense of relief and relaxation.
Blue Aragonite releases deep felt hurt or loss of a loved one and not being able to cope with the grief or break up of a relationship.

Caribbean calcite and Blue Aragonite are often mistaken for each other with only the specialist being able to tell them apart. Blue Aragonite is a very, close cousin to Caribbean calcite which is a blend of blue calcite and aragonite. Blue aragonite is pure aragonite. They are so, close that they both consist of calcium carbonate and they have the same chemical formula (CaCO3). The colours are similar with mainly blues, banding of brown and or white and sometimes inclusions. The main difference are the internal structures:

Caribbean Calcite has a trigonal crystal structure where the crystal lattice is symmetrical with three axes of equal length and intersect at 120-degree angles. This gives it unique properties, allowing light through the stone, splitting into as it goes Blue Aragonite, on the other hand, has an orthorhombic crystal structure, which means the crystal lattice is asymmetrical. It will have three axes of unequal lengths that intersect at 90 degree angles.

Whilst the red aragonite is works across the entire chakra column, Blue Aragonite works especially well with the throat chakra. It helps communicate emotional pain and feelings.

This natural blue gem is considered one of the best for sound healing and breath work.

Blue Aragonite is a rare stone and only a few ardent collectors and afficionados know of its existence. Most often it is only available as small specimens or tumble stones. When it does become available it is usually snapped up quickly.
