Chemical Formula: CaCO3
Aragonite is a calcium carbonate mineral and has the same chemical composition as Calcite, however they grow in different shapes. Aragonite is formed during igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic processes. In igneous processes, Aragonite is formed in lava beds where there are high pressures with lower temperatures. In metamorphosis processes, Aragonite forms in greenstone of basaltic rocks deep under water. Depending on the concentration of magnesium in the waters, either Aragonite or Calcite will form from carbonate marine organisms. Aragonite may also change to Calcite, or vice versa, over time. Within the human body, the element calcium encourages the metabolism of cells and is vital for forming DNA (holder of genetic information) and RNA (the sender of information on proteins, hormones, and enzymes). It strengthens the heart and the rhythm of the heart and regulates the acid/alkaline states of the body. Also, calcium supports and strengthens bones.
Aragonite got its name around 1790s after being first noted in Aragon, a Spanish province. Although it was not yet named, Aragonite was used in the Middle Ages as a remedy for fatigue and hair loss by mystical and traditional alchemists. The Shinto religion often associated Aragonite with the Goddess Amaterasu, the sun goddess that created life.
