Aragonite Crystals

Aragonite was named in 1797 for Aragon, the Spanish city near the location where the type specimens were found. It comes in many forms, including columns, fibrous or hexagonal crystals. Aragonite is a common mineral found all over the earth, and it is one of the main components of almost all mollusc shells and hard corals. A form of Calcium Carbonate, it is a glassy, colorless crystal similar to Calcite, with a hardness of 3.5-4 on the Mohs scale.

These crystals have a rust-red color typical from their location in Morocco, due to oxide impurities in the crystals themselves. A great gift for kids, these curious little crystal clusters can be found in many collections around the world, and would be a great addition to your curio shelf or cabinet of curiosities!
