This carbonate gemstone has a mellow orange or straw yellow color and has come to symbolize truth and understanding. The Aragon River in Spain, where it was first discovered in 1788, is what the mineral is named after.
Aragonite is a carbonate metamorphous gemstone naturally found in stalactites or around natural hot springs. This form of aragonite is often called floss ferri (“iron flowers”), due to its thin, entwined branch-like crystal formations. Another source of aragonite can be found in the mother-of-pearl lining of mollusk shells. It is secreted by the mantle tissue of mollusks--specifically in pearl oysters--and makes up the layers of nacre that the oyster uses to create the pearl itself. The multiple thin layers of aragonite give the abalone shell the pearl-like luster and beauty that makes it much loved for sage smudging among certain Native American tribes.
