It was named in 1778 by the German Abraham Gottlob Werner (scientist 1749 or 1750-1817) from some specimens that came from Molina de Aragón (Guadalajara, Spain) thinking that they belonged to the autonomous community of Aragón.
Of hydrothermal origin, the aragonite is found in rock fissures and cavities. It is also formed as a conglomerate in hot sources, as well as by inorganic calcium precipitation from surface waters. Among the varieties of aragonite is the so-called flos-ferri (iron flower), which resembles a coral.
The Aragonite can be found in the shells of almost all mollusks and in the skeleton of corals.
The aragonite teaches patience and acceptance, its practical energy generates discipline and reliability, mentally provides flexibility and tolerance, emotionally combats anger and emotional stress.
