Aragonite History and Uses:
Aragonite was named in 1790 after the Spanish province of Aragon, where it was first found. It is a popular glassy ornamental stone that can be found in layered, clustered or banded varieties. The shells of certain mollusks, such as abalone, are actually made of aragonite, which gives them a mother-of-pearl luster. Many fossil shells now composed of calcite were originally formed of aragonite, which is unstable in high pressures and temperatures. These fossils have usually lost their original pearly luster. Natural pearls are also mostly formed by aragonite which bonds with conchiolin, a process that takes 7 years to complete.
Aragonite Geological Description:
Aragonite occurs in the oxidized zones or ore deposits formed at hydro-thermal locations near the surface of the Earth, such as in hot springs, mineral veins, and forming as stalactites in caves. This is chemically identical to Calcite. Due to being orthorhombic shaped, crystals may come in a variety of structures; prismatic, twinned, columnar, stalactitic, radiating, fibrous, and/or hexagonal “Sputnik” or "Star" shaped. Aragonite also forms the skeleton of many marine organisms. Colour range includes gray, yellowish, green, blue, red, brown to white and colourless. Hardness is rated at 3.5-4 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. Aragonite is found in throughout Europe, Morocco, Japan, and in the USA – New Mexico and Arizona.
