The name Anhydrite comes from the Greek word anhydras meaning "without water". A reference to angelite being a gypsum that has completely lost all hydration, becoming a stone that is "without water." It is a soft mineral which will convert into Gypsum if immersed in water, so it is suggested that you do not wear it when you are going to take a bath or swim or anything that could get the stone wet. Blue is the color of the true natural birthstones of those who are born during February 19–March 19. This is a time when new life is about to burst forth, a time of faith and trust. Angelite is associated with the Throat Chakra. The throat chakra is the voice of the body. It is a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakra to be expressed. If it is out of balance or blocked, it can affect the health of the other chakras. It is a great stone for people such as artists and those who work in creative fields as it provides creativity to the wearer. It can turn fear into faith.
