History and Lore

Aragonite was named after the Aragon River in 1790 after being found there in 1788. Compared to many other stones that have been used by humans since forever, aragonite is a relatively new stone. While it has existed much longer than the 1700’s, little is known about this gem’s history. One little fact is that Aragonite was favored by Spanish monks for use in their rosaries.

There is a legend that Aragonite is composed of a Spanish girl’s tears who was separated from her beloved. Her tears fell to the ground when she broke up with her fiancé and formed Aragonite spikes.

Wizards in the Middle Ages believed hexagonal Aragonite to resemble a magical symbol, The Seal of Solomon. It is believed that this seal gave Solomon the power to speak to animals and command genies.

Composition and Formation

Aragonite is a carbonate gemstone that typically ranges in color from straw yellow to a mellow shade of orange. It occurs naturally around hot springs and in stalactites and is sometimes referred to as “floss ferri” or “iron flowers” because it has intertwined branch-like crystal formations that resemble flowers. With a rating of 3.5 on the hardness scale, it is a relatively brittle stone. For this reason, it is not typically cut into gemstones for jewelry making purposes. It usually forms in sedimentary rock and as a deposit from hot springs. It can also be found in some cavities and veins where dolomite and calcite are present.

Aragonite also forms in mollusk shells. The mantle tissue inside pearl oysters secretes it as nacre to form a pearl. Layers of the substance also build up on the inside of the mollusk’s shell to form what we know as mother of pearl. Thin layers of aragonite are what create the pearl-like beauty that can be seen inside abalone shells.
