This is a unique and interesting piece that features an aragonite stalactite with a large gemmy white calcite crystal perched upon the snow white aragonite. Specimens like this form is cave systems around the world where slightly acidic waters dissolve calcium from rocks such as limestone. The calcium rich water travels through caves where it is redeposited as calcite and aragonite. Measures 8.5" x 2" 

Aragonite is a carbonate mineral, one of the two most common polymorphs of natural calcium carbonate, the other polymorph being the mineral calcite. Aragonite is often white or colorless, but can also be gray, yellow, orange, blue, green or brown depending on the location, impurities and crystal size.

White aragonite clusters can be utilized for decorative purposes, such as in mineral collections and as decorative pieces in homes or offices. They can also be utilized for educational purposes, as they provide a glimpse into the natural mineral formations that occur underground.

In metaphysics, some people believe that aragonite can be utilized to help with emotional stability and to promote a sense of peace and calm. It is also said to help with emotional healing and to promote self-love and acceptance. Additionally, it's said to be helpful for those who have difficulty expressing themselves, as it is believed to boost communication and self-confidence.
