Aragonite

More information about aragonite

Aragonite is found in many different shapes, colours and countries. The more posh name often given to, for example, older vases, bowls or natural stone traders is Onyx.

Calcite is very similar to aragonite and is often confused with aragonite (also because of the many different colour forms mentioned above). This is because the chemical composition of calcite is almost the same as that of aragonite.

On the pictures below you can see what kind of aragonite we have and how different they are.
We have spheres in different sizes, tumbled stones, standups, rough chunks and interior items on a pedestal. 

Formation and creation of aragonite

In contrast to many other minerals, aragonite is found close to the earth's surface. It is formed at lower temperatures and found in places such as hot springs, geysers and shallow seas.
 
Aragonite is found in many different places around the world. Well known countries where aragonite is found are Afhanistan, Morocco and France.
