Everything We Know About Aragonite Healing Crystals

Healing crystals come in what seems to be an endless amount of shapes, colors, and sizes, which can make choosing which to buy overwhelming. Each style of crystal also has its own benefits, purposes, and uses, which naturally only adds to the pressure of buying them. The beautiful, golden pyrite, for example, brings its users prosperity and wealth. But what about other crystals such as aragonite?

According to Fire Mountain Gems, aragonite can be white, yellow, brown, and tinted red, and it belongs to the carbonate group of crystals. It's a warm gemstone not only in color, but also in its abilities. It's a stalactite deposit found in caves, and it takes its name from the Aragon region of Spain, where it was originally found. It can, however, also be natively found in Poland, Austria, Mexico, Germany, Italy, France, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Namibia. However, Fire Mountain Gems noted that the best quality aragonite typically comes from Karlsbad, Czechoslovakia.

This gemstone can make you 'feel comfortable' in your body

Aragonite can be found around the world, but what does it do for us? Well, according to the Energy Muse, aragonite possesses the innate power of light. When you use it in your healing rituals, it dispels darkness and brings matters that you need to deal with to the forefront. In fact, Energy Muse noted, "If you have an issue that you're sweeping under the rug, it's going to bring it up so fast that the rug just disappears." It's best to deal with your problems, and aragonite is good for that.

According to Healing With Crystals, aragonite simply "makes you feel comfortable and well within your own body." The outlet explained that it fights disease, heals bones, helps distribute calcium throughout the body, and can stop your muscles from twitching. It also strengthens your immune system, which is at the center of its powers. Everything aragonite does is to help make you the healthiest and best version of yourself. Because of this, it's also great to use for your mental health. It can soothe anxiety and calm your stress. When used mentally, it can also help you solve any issues you have with your childhood. Again, it's simply working to bring you inner peace.

Aragonite can be used in any standard healing crystal ritual, and to clean it, you can use warm water and a light, non-abrasive soap (via Fire Mountain Gems). You don't want to be rough with it, as aragonite can shatter, which also means you want to be careful when storing it. Fire Mountain Gems also noted that aragonite makes great pieces of jewelry if you know how to craft. Wearing this stone can protect you and keep your health in check.

Overall, aragonite is known as a powerhouse gemstone, according to Energy Muse, and we can see why. If you haven't given it a shot before, now might be the best time!
