Aragonite, Fellow Traveler

Aragonite is a powerful grounding stone and can be used to promote healing of the earth.

Sputnik, a common crystalline form of Aragonite, literally means  “fellow traveler of the earth.”  You may also have heard Sputnik used as the name
of the famous Russian Satellite!

Aragonite

Aragonite is similar in composition to calcite.  It is formed by biological and physical processes, including precipitation from marine and freshwater environments.  Typical colors include clear, white, yellow, blue, green, orange.  Aragonite is the main component of many organic substances, such as pearl, coral, and ammolite.



The Healing Properties of Aragonite vary based on color.  Some general properties attributed to Aragonite include:

  • Powerful grounding stone
  • Providing stress relief and calming nerves
  • Promoting patience and understanding
  • Increasing concentration
  • Increasing energy
  • Promoting feelings of self-worth
  • Preparing for meditation

Aragonite is associated typically with the 2nd chakra, though it has also been associated with the 1st, 4th and 6th chakras (depending in part on color).

Aragonite is said to be attuned to the Earth and can be used to clear blocked Ley Lines.  Scientist have even found a way to use Aragonite to filter contaminants out of water!
