Origin of Name & Mythology: Angelite is the trade name for the fine-grained, blue-grey massively formed anhydrite from Peru. It is said to be named for the discoverer's girlfriend. There are no traditions associated with this mineral.
Angelite's dull surface appearance and blue-grey colour belies the strength of its energy and its wonderful properties. It is surprisingly powerful, and yet calming at the same time.
Angelite heightens perception and is excellent in balancing the physical and the ethereal realms. It can be used as such in both healing and spiritual exploration, and embraces compassion while allowing for cool detachment.
Angelite enhances psychic abilities and spiritual awareness, and strengthens our connection and communication with guides and the angelic realm.
