Angelite is a form of anhydrite, which is a crystal made of calcium sulfate. It is recognizable by its beautiful, milky blue colour, and one of the best stones for improving spirituality and spiritual awareness.

Anhydrite, including angelite, is an inherently unstable stone. When anhydrite is exposed to water, it transforms into gypsum (although it can be transformed back by heating it to 200 degrees Celsius).

Alternate Names for Angelite: Blue Anhydrite
Anhydrite is formed in places where gypsum stones that had previously been in contact with water, which then evaporates, leaving anhydrite crystals behind.

While this can occur all over the world, as gypsum is a very common mineral, notable deposits are in the Persian Gulf, and on the coast of Chile.

Since angelite is a very specific colour and formation of anhydrite crystals, although anhydrite is found all over the world, angelite is still quite a rare stone.

It is found only when the right concentration of minerals are found in the anhydrite deposits to turn it into the beautiful and distinctive blue colour that characterizes angelite.

Angelite is one of the strongest stones that you can use for developing spiritual and religious strength, fostering psychic power, and establishing connections to higher powers.

If this interests you, then the work involved in acquiring and caring for an angelite stone will be well worth the effort.

Angelite’s name is an indication of its primary power: this is, in simplest terms, a stone for contacting angels.

Now, there are a lot of facets to that description, and it would be simplistic for me to leave the description of angelite at that, especially since the term “angel” is loaded with a lot of cultural connotations that may or may not reflect exactly what angelite’s powers do.

In modern western culture, the word “angel” has a connotation of gentle, usually feminine beings in a primarily Christian-influenced understanding of the world.

While that understanding of angels is certainly not wrong or worthless, it is limited.

In the Bible, and in early Christian writings, angels were seen as far more powerful, less peaceful beings. The word “angel” comes from the ancient Greek word meaning “messenger.”

Ancient cultures conceptualize angels as the “middle ground” between humans and gods, more powerful and divine than humans but lesser than God (or the full gods of Ancient Greek and Roman mythology).

In the Middle Ages, angels were frequently seen as avenging spirits, especially the sword-wielding seraphim.

It is only since the nineteenth century that angels became characterized as unusually gentle or benevolent, or that the idea of deceased people becoming angels entered western thought in a significant way.

No matter what idea of angels you find most meaningful, you can guarantee that there is power to it.

It is perfectly easy to imagine all these different understandings of angels as facets of a full or even incomprehensible reality, and whatever is most meaningful to you, personally, is what you should pursue.

The bottom line is that angelite will help you get in contact with these divine powers who – according to virtually every conceptualization, or even by definition – mediate between the human world and the world of God or the gods.

By coming to understand these beings, and becoming able to communicate with them, you can develop your spiritual senses, and become a much more enlightened, psychically attuned person for your entire life on Earth.

I understand that this is not something that interests everyone, as angelite’s powers will not directly help you in achieving many of the goals that we seek to achieve on Earth.

If this is the case, feel free to pass this stone by.en as far more powerful, less peaceful beings. The word “angel” comes from the ancient Greek word meaning “messenger.”
