Introduction to Angelite

Angelite is a form of Anhydrite. It is essentially a dehydrated form of gypsum with light blue coloring. It is still a relatively rare gemstone, as it was only discovered in 1794. You will sometimes see it referred to as compressed Celestine; they are very similarly colored, but they are formed of different minerals and have different metaphysical properties.

Interestingly, this rock is highly reactive to water. If exposed to water over a long period of time, it will "rehydrate" into gypsum. Baking it in a 200-degree oven for a few hours will convert it back to Angelite. We were a bit skeptical of this claim. We tested it out, leaving a piece in water for 3 weeks, and the rock actually started to develop a white crust around the outside. Probably not something you want to try, but a fun fact to know about your stones!

Angelite is closely associated with Aquarius. Those born under this sign can use the stone to overcome stubbornness and be more open to other opinions.

Angelite Meaning

Angelite is best known for its gentle energy, as well as its ability to magnify quiet strength and acceptance.

When you're in a bad situation or feeling overwhelmed, hold on to the stone and let the crystal calm your thoughts and energies.

Its ties to the throat chakra make it an excellent stone to overcome issues with communicating and expressing yourself in group settings and relationships. Angelite encourages you to accept others' opinions while staying true to your own.

Use your Angelite when you need a fresh perspective. It is also helpful to have with you when you need to respond to others with greater empathy. This crystal is also useful when you are studying metaphysical or mathematical concepts; it will increase your understanding and grasp of the concepts.
