Physical Properties

Argonite is found in many different habits: small, elongate, prismatic crystals form in radiating groups, and concretions and stalactites are also common. The prismatic and elongated crystals formed by aragonite are often twinned. If intergrown, such twins may produce pseudo-hexagonal forms. It is found mainly in sedimentary and metamorphic environments, aragonite may form as tufa (porous rock). It has poor cleavage. It is usually transparent or translucent, and colourless or white when pure. Impurities may cause shades of yellow, blue, pink, or green to occur.
