What is Aragonite?
Part of the Carbonate mineral family, Aragonite naturally occurs in a variety of colors, ranging from white to blue-green, but it is most commonly found in a deep red/brown. Its name comes from the location where it was originally observed, the Aragon region of Spain. Aragonite stones are typically small in size and not as transparent as its relative, Calcite, which it is capable of transforming into if heated to high enough temperatures. This crystal’s strong connection to the Earth makes it the perfect grounding stone.
Aragonite Properties For Health
Aragonite typically comes in a brown/red color, which correlates with the circulatory system. If you suffer from aches and pains, cold extremities, inflammation, or joint pain, Aragonite can help relieve your symptoms. Aragonite has also been known to help in the recovery process for broken bones and issues with the nervous system, especially in regard to twitching or spasms, even restless leg syndrome. Since Aragonite also supports calming and centering, if you suffer from insomnia, it’s perfect to have under your pillow at night.
Metaphysical Benefits of Aragonite
Aragonite helps you release past negativity, while also helping you avoid toxic situations and people in the present. This stone has powerful grounding properties. It centers you, making you at peace with yourself, which in turn allows you to bring peace and calm to situations that cause anger and anxiety. Aragonite allows you to be patient, generous, and accepting of others’ emotions. If you’ve been suffering from stagnation or a lack of self-discipline, Aragonite will help you overcome these obstacles. Aragonite also allows you to release control, delegating what you can and also letting go of things that you have no power over.
What is the Spiritual Significance of Aragonite?
Aragonite is associated with the Capricorn zodiac sign and vibrates at the number 9. It affects the Root and Earth Star Chakras, fostering a profound connection with the Earth and your deepest needs. Aragonite will clear blockages in relation to ley lines and geopathic stress. If you’ve been hyper-focused on connecting to the spirit realm, Aragonite is perfect for stabilizing those energies and re-centering you. Tarot readers and other spiritual professionals might find this grounding energy particularly useful after working.
How to Use Aragonite Crystals

You can carry Aragonite with you throughout the day for grounding energy as well. In times of impatience, hold the stone to relieve your anxious energies. Use Aragonite in areas of studying and concentration, like offices or classrooms. Aragonite is especially useful for people who hold powerful positions, as it helps them delegate and trust their team. Environmental professionals can use this stone’s powerful ties to the Earth to boost their work.
Aragonite’s strong connection to the Earth makes it the perfect tool for Earth healers. Aragonite stones clear barriers and blockages created by geopathic stress, and they also stabilize the human-Earth relationship.
Aragonite stones emit a strong vibration and should be cleared very frequently. There is a wide variety of techniques to clear crystals, although, for this particular stone, we do not recommend water-based cleansing rituals. Aragonite’s ties to the Earth make burying it in soil a particularly powerful cleansing method. You can also try surrounding it with salt or adding it to a bowl of dried herbs like sage and sandalwood. Check out our blog for more clearing ideas!

Using Aragonite on Ley Lines
Sometimes animals are our best teachers. They are so sensitive, and they don’t question their intuition like we do. One of our owners, Karen, has a maltipoo dog named Rocky…what else would he be named right?
Rocky is a profound healer and can discern energy changes faster than most humans. Several years ago Karen learned just how in tune he is to earth energy. Karen spends a lot of time working from her home office which is at the end of a long hallway. Rocky always happily followed her to the office every day and settled into his bed beside. Didn’t matter what Karen was doing in the office, working by herself or seeing clients Rocky was always here.
One day, out of the blue, Rocky would only come part way down the hall. It was like there was an invisible line half-way down the hall! He stood there and barked until Karen would come, pick him up and carry him into the office. And if she didn’t get there fast enough he would suck it up and scramble past the unseen obstacle as if he was being chased by a pack of wolves.
A good clearing of the energy didn’t improve the situation. A friend of ours suggested there may have been a shift in an earth ley line and Rocky was picking up on it. She suggested placing a piece of aragonite near that area to see if we could shift the energy.
Karen put some aragonite clusters right around the area in the hall where he would stop and the very next day here comes Rocky right into the office without any hesitation. Amazingly he never has had another issue following Karen into the office! We would say “I wouldn’t have believed it unless I saw it” but we know how powerful crystals are and the work they can do.
