Angelite: Meaning, Healing & Properties

Everything you need to know about Angelite.


Angelite is a form of anhydrite, which is a crystal made of Calcium Sulphate (CaSO4). The crystals are formed in places where gypsum stones had previously been in contact with water, which then evaporates, leaving anhydrite crystals behind. 

Angelite, also known as anhydrite or angel stone, is a glacier blue- or lilac blue-coloured soft stone that has a white centre and snow-white flecks with occasional brown or rusty inclusions and it is measured as having a hardness of 4 on the Mohs scale. 

Angelite is an inherently unstable stone. When anhydrite is exposed to water, it transforms into gypsum (although it can be transformed back by heating it to 200 degrees Celsius). If immersed in water, Angelite will show the traces of white calcium that it contains. Hence, it must not be done.


How Can You Tell If Angelite Crystal Is Real?

Angelite is a semi-transparent anhydrite variation with a delicate glacier-blue or lilac-blue colour.

Small red hematite inclusions may also be seen in some of the specimens. Genuine Angelite crystal often has rusty brownish-red streaks on it.

Angelite may have a lot of crumbling in its natural state.

The cost of Angelite Crystal can be determined according to its transparency.

Angelite best combines with:

  • Shungite, Smoky Quartz or Hematite: When pairing Angelite with other crystals, consider stones that are known to get rid of negativity. These 3 are good for this.

  • Rose Quartz: These two gemstones work wonders collectively, especially when it comes to love and relationships.

  • Amethyst: Combined this helps accelerate the development and psychic abilities and the ability to connect with the angelic realm.

  • Clear Quartz: Combined their effects are enhanced psychic abilities and an expanded consciousness.  

  • Element: Air
  • Planet: Uranus, Moon
  • Zodiac: Aquarius
  • Chakras: Crown, Throat, Third Eye


A relatively recent discovery in the mineral and gem world, angelite was discovered in 1987 in Peru. The name ahnydrite comes from the Greek anhydras--meaning "without water"--a reference to angelite being a gypsum that has completely lost all hydration, becoming a stone that is "without water."

The stone is formed from celestite (another form of gypsum) that has been compressed for many millions of years. Anhydrite gypsum was originally found in Peru. It has since been found in Britain, Germany, Poland, Libya, Egypt and Mexico.


The Angelite crystal is a lullaby of light and love and leaping to higher consciousness. This is one of those stones that simply oozes spirituality and healing. With shades as soft as angel wings or the pale dawn sky streaked with a thousand promises, the Angelite Stone brings its blue colour, its ethereal energy, and its messages from the other side straight to your heart. 

Known for its elevated spirit, its tranquil nature, and its promise of surrender and connection to higher purpose and spirit guides, Angelite is the perfect stone for those on a journey towards deeper shades of awakening. 


This stone is an amazing healer of the physical body. This crystal is able to balance a person’s thyroid gland. It also allows the body to get rid of any infections that are related to the throat. It aids in the renewal of blood vessels and certainly has beneficial properties to the heart. 

It repairs tissue and corrects blood deficiencies and helps to renew blood vessels.  Angelite balances the fluids within the physical body, and can act as a diuretic.  It is useful in weight control, and relates particularly to the lungs and arms.  Angelite can be used for headaches, heart function, the circulatory system and infectious diseases.  At a subtle level, Angelite balances the physical body with the etheric realms.


If you want to live your life with intention and higher purpose, then Angelite is the stone for you. For those who find their heart and head clogged with anxiety, anger, resentment, or any of these emotions that can turn toxic when out of balance, Angelite is here to clear all that chaos away. It’s a stone that transmutes beautiful positive and serene vibes, inviting you to step into forgiveness, to fill your heart with compassion, and to reconnect you to the cycles of the breath that carry you forward into awareness. Angelite comes with a certain sense of surrender. Surrender doesn’t have to be a word associated with weakness, in fact, it takes a whole heap of strength to stop fussing and fighting and to let yourself get swept along with the energy of the now.
