Angelite is often used to create jewellery, either shaped into cabochons or beads.  Tumbled stones are also available in various sizes.  This crystal can be found shaped into various forms, most commonly, eggs, spheres and hearts.

Cleansing and charging angelite

All crystals should be cleansed when you first get them and then regularly after that.  They should also be charged to keep them at their full power.

Two of the most common ways to cleanse crystals is with water and with sunlight.

Can angelite get wet?

With a hardness of just 3.5 on the Mohs scale angelite is a relatively soft crystal and should not be put in water.  Any crystal with a harness of 5 or will be damaged by water.

Can angelite go in sunlight?

Yes, angelite can go in the sun.  Sun can fade some crystals, however angelite will not fade in sunlight so is safe to cleanse and charge this way.
