Let us learn more about Augelite.
Augelite is a rare mineral that is a composition of Aluminum Phosphate Hydroxide. Augelite is believed to be associated with the crown and third-eye chakra. These stones will help in opening up and balancing both chakras. It helps the wearer to get rid of emotional securities, dispel negative energies, stabilize the mind, stimulate the energy, and give access to higher states of consciousness.
In 1868, Augelite was first recognized as a mineral species. After its discovery, Christian Wilhelm Blomstrand, a Swedish chemist, and mineralogist gave it the name "Augelite". It was derived from the Greek word "Auge" which means "Shine". This name was given in allusion to the pearly luster on its cleavage surfaces. The localities for these stones are Sweden, Uganda, Rwanda, the US, Australia, Canada, and Bolivia.
Augelite forms and occurs commonly as a result of hydrogen metamorphism of phosphate rocks in peraluminous sediment and high-temperature hydrothermal ores deposits.
The chemical formula of Augelite is Al2(PO4)(OH)3. These stones have a hardness of 4-4.5 on the Mohs scale and they have a vitreous to pearly luster.
Augelite has no type of its own.
The price of Augelite can be determined by its color, size, and quality and its value can vary from $10 to $110 per carat.
