Angelite Meaning and Properties
A relatively recent discovery, angelite was discovered in Peru in 1987. The name Ahnydrite comes from the Greek anhydras meaning "without water" a reference to angelite being a gypsum that has completely lost all hydration, becoming a stone that is "without water."
Angelite is a lovely blue stone with a peaceful energy that is calming and soothing.
It has a vibration that is very helpful to aid contact with beings in the higher realms and in particular with members of the angelic kingdom.
Many people choose to use it is because it both aids you to connect with angels, and is also helpful to assist you to make contact with spirit guides.
In many people it may also stimulate the birth of psychic gifts, and aid channeling and mediumship.
It is a strong communication stone, and an extremely helpful healing crystal, that will benefit you in a number of ways.
Caring for Angelite
Anhydrite, including Angelite, is an inherently unstable stone, able to absorb moisture with incredible ease. It can also be easily marred, so protect it from scratches, sharp blows or large temperature changes that will fracture, shatter or chip it. When anhydrite is exposed or immersed into water, it transforms into gypsum. Therefore, do not wear angelite while perspiring, bathing or swimming. It is best cleaned with a soft, dry cloth.
