Aragonite

Aragonite is very similar to calcite in that they are both forms of carbonate mineral. It can grow in a wide variety of shapes and colors, although the most common way it forms is as a brown layered mineral - this form is called a "sputnik formation" for the way it spikes out like the first man-made satellite, the Sputnik. Aragonite is said to be incredibly grounding and is used in conjunction with the three lowest chakra centers.
