Named after a village in Spain, Molina de Aragon, where it was first identified. Aragonite has the same chemical composition as calcite, but with different crystal structure that makes it harder and heavier. This beautiful crystal brings to mind an association with alternate reality and expansion of consciousness. Its ability to spark creative imaginative thought makes aragonite a good stone for a new way of thinking.
