Astrological sign(s): Pisces
Mohs scale: 3.5–4
Spiritual uses: Crystalline aragonite carries within it the vibrations of caves and the oceans. It is a storehouse of ancient knowledge.
Mental uses: This gemstone gently guides you to go quietly within yourself to locate your center.
Emotional uses: Aragonite shows you the way into your center to feel and know the depth of your emotions. This stone is a reminder that it is important to recognize and become aware of your emotions and define them, but it is also equally important to learn to detach from your feelings to become an objective observer, just as an artist observes art in nature.
Physical uses: With its significant calcium content, aragonite lends itself to assist with disease or health challenges related to a calcium deficiency. Form the intention that the vibration of aragonite will help you use nutrition and exercise to improve the health of your bones, muscles, and teeth.
