Angelite, also referred to as “blue anhydrite,” is a stunning pale blue or white colored stone that is formed as a result of celestite being compressed for millions of years. It is a type of calcium sulfate or “anhydrate,” which is a gypsum that lost water and then crystallized afterward. Sometimes, traces of white calcium mineral may be seen within it. It exhibits an orthorhombic crystal system, a brittle tenacity, a Mohs scale hardness of 3.5, a specific gravity of 2.97, a pearly or vitreous to greasy luster, and a white streak. It is transparent to translucent. Some specimens fluoresce; more fluoresce upon heating. Angelite was discovered in Peru quite recently (1987). Special care must be taken with it, as it is very soft and therefore easily damaged. It should not be worn while swimming or in the shower.

In the metaphysical world, angelite resonates with the crown and throat chakra, but also with the third eye chakra. It is associated with the element of wind and usually brings to mind the energies of power, protection love and healing. Wearing this crystal, keeping it on your person and/or meditating with it will likely have a calming effect upon you and connect you to guides and angels. It is believed to help us to conquer the fear that keeps us from unlocking blocks in our lives. It may also sharpen skills of telepathy and clairvoyance, connect you to your higher self, encourage forgiveness on all levels, facilitate astral travel, and more. If you desire to know your life's purpose, this crystal may reveal to you the divine plan. Those interested in feng shui may use angelite in the center area for harmony and balance and in the northeast area for knowledge and wisdom.

On a tangible level, angelite is often used by crystal healers to address throat inflammation and infection, atrophy of the thymus, hemoglobin deficiency in the blood, blood vessel and muscular tissue damage, slow blood circulation, a range of infectious diseases and more. Its presence near the human body is believed to help maintain the proper functioning and overall health of the heart and circulatory system. Many people also choose to keep it on or near them daily, claiming that it eases or eliminates their headaches and migraines. An effective way to test out this claim would be to wear it in the form of jewelry, particularly close to the head (necklace and/or earrings). Angelite may also prove useful to those who struggle with weight control, making it a supportive and valuable workout companion. Because this crystal is claimed to strengthen all of the organs of the body, keeping it around after any kind of surgery may prove beneficial. In fact, angelite's mere presence is believed to cast a protective energy field around any or all body parts.
