Chatoyant Green Aragonite From Spain
A rare find! This is a beautiful green Aragonite slab hailing from Spain. This unusual variety of Aragonite hails from Spain, specifically the Spanish mine of Mina La Profunda, in the province of Castile and Leon. Additionally, this slab also displays chatoyancy in the fibrous areas which is also unusual for Aragonite. Copper is giving the Aragonite its unique coloration. Looks like the windswept sea. You will receive the exact slab shown.

Aragonite is an important mineral in the natural world and is considered a powerful Earth healing stone. Aragonite occurs both organically (in the shells of sea life) and grows inorganically, in the ocean and caves. The shells of some sea life are made of Aragonite and it is what comprises ‘Mother of Pearl’. One of its most important roles is in Coral reefs. Aragonite is a building block of Coral Reefs and is essential for sustaining the life found there.
In 2007, it was confirmed that Aragonite could purify contaminated water, even removing lead and other heavy metals. Certain home water softening systems now use Aragonite filters.
In the metaphysical world, Aragonite is a powerful healing stone with deep connections to the Earth’s energy. In Nature, Aragonite builds and supports the structures of life. And so it follows that Aragonite is a stone that supports those who are ‘builders’ literally and figuratively. It is considered beneficial to woodworkers, craftsmen, artists and all those who work to create or improve. I would also expand this recommendation to include those who work in graphic design, web design and coding; professions that involve building but also can deprive one of Nature. Aragonite brings to mind the intricate and ancient process that created the Earth we know today. It allows one to be in harmony with their environment and see the beauty of our world with appreciation and respect.
Along with an appreciation for Nature, comes our recognition of our place in it; Aragonite helps us to let go of our desires and fears, and see ourselves as part of a large story in which each thing has its place. It helps us connect to the Earth and respect our environment.
Along with appreciating the natural environment, Aragonite can be a reminder to ‘grow where you are planted’ tending to our living space & family with renewed satisfaction. Brown color energy is grounding and is associated with the feeling of being at home. So the warm brown color of this Aragonite is perfect for creating a comforting, welcoming place where we feel safe and at ease.
Aragonite is also thought to dispel negative energy, which seems appropriate considering its impressive detoxifying effects in the physical world.
