First discovered in Peru in 1987, this variety of Blue Anhydrite is commonly called Angelite presumably due to it's soft blue color resembling the heavenly realms. It is sometimes claimed that Angelite is compressed Celestite, however chemically this is impossible. Angelite is a variety of Anhydrite, which is an anhydrous calcium sulphate (or in simpler terms, it's ingredients are calcium, silicon and oxygen). Celestite, being a strontium sulphate (made up of strontium, silicon and oxygen), cannot simply convert its Strontium atoms to Calcium atoms by pressure - they are completely separate minerals.
The name’s literal meaning comes from the Greek word anhydrous, without water. It is usually found in arid climates and located in limestone, gypsum beds, or halite rock salt deposits.
