A trade name for a semi-transparent light blue-grey fine-grained Anhydrite marketed as a gem material from Peru. The local little lapidary factories in Lima made it into balls, eggs, "wands", animal carvings etc. The name first appeared as a new age/metaphysical name and had various "powers" attributed to it. As yet, the name has not been applied to anhydrite from any other locality. The color is white, sometimes greyish, bluish, or purple. On the best developed of the three cleavages, the lustre is pearly; on other surfaces it is vitreous. When exposed to water, anhydrite readily transforms to the more commonly occurring gypsum, (CaSO4·2H2O) by the absorption of water.

As with all stones, natural fissures can be present. These fissures should be inspected prior to cutting, trimming, and shaping. Stabilizing fissures with clear Opiticon jewelers epoxy may be considered.

Metaphysical Characteristics

(As its name suggests, Angelite (also called Anhydrite) has a connection to the higher realms, facilitating angelic communication. It is a very soothing, peaceful, and uplifting stone, quite helpful during times of transition. Angelite (Anhydrite) is one of a group of higher vibrational crystals that can assist in smoothing the way for vibrational shifts, awareness and ascension.

Angelite works to clear the Throat, Third Eye, and Crown chakras, and sends energy to the Soul Star chakra that lies 6 inches above the head. The higher vibrations sent to these chakras allows for greater spiritual growth, enhanced intuition, and clearer communication. Angelite’s ability to unblock the upper chakras clears the area to allow for the influx of higher vibrational information coming into the auric field, to be processed by the lower chakras.

Angelite (Anhydrite) can be used during meditation to enhance the meditative state, and to clarify issues in one's current situations as they arise. By depositing inspiration from guides, guardians and/or angels into the chakras, Angelite allows them to be integrated into the whole, even after one is done working with the stone.
