Angelite Gemstone

Angelite also known as Blue Anhydrite or angel stone, Anhydrite was originally found in Peru. It has since been found in Britain, Germany, Poland, Libya, Egypt and Mexico. Its color is commonly medium to pale blue, but some pieces may be bluish white or white in color, with the occasional tiny red Hematite inclusions.

what is Angelite Crystal Gemstone

Angelite is a form of anhydrite, which is a crystal made of calcium sulfate. The crystals are formed in places where gypsum stones had previously been in contact with water, which then evaporates, leaving anhydrite crystals behind. It looks a lot like Blue Calcite, but it has a different appearance, as it is denser and quite opaque. Although it is said that it can be found as crystals, these are quite uncommon and it is more likely to be seen in the massive form.
