Angelite or Blue Anhydrite is a fairly new discovery in the gem and mineral world. Discovered in 1987 in Peru, during the Harmonic Conversion, its colours may be white, grey or bluish grey to violet. Angelite is formed from Celestite, that has been compressed over millions of years.
Psychologically, Angelite enhances astrological understanding and assist one to speak the truth and be more compassionate and accepting, especially of things that cannot be changed. It promotes feelings of peace and tranquillity and is also believed to heighten an individual’s perception and enhances telepathic communication.
Being an Angel stone, the Angelite helps connect its user to angels and the angelic realm. Therefore it is known that when you place your crystal under a full moon the stone grants you a wish.
In crystal healing Angelite can be placed on the Throat Chakra to resonate with the throat, reducing inflammation and to balance the thyroid and the parathyroid. It also repairs and soothes tissues and blood vessels.
Emotionally this crystal helps promote compassion and understanding towards your peers. It can help one to speak the truth when this is difficult and alleviates psychological pain
As the Angelite is water-soluble, it is not recommended to soak in water. Salt Cleansing and Lunar Cleansing is recommended for this stone.
