Worry stones are smooth, polished stones, usually in the shape of an oval, with a thumb-sized indentation. They are often used by people for relaxation or anxiety relief purposes, the same way as some people use a fidget spinner. Typically, worry stones are 1 1/2 to 2 inches across. They may also be referred to as palm stones, thumb stones, fidget stones, etc.

Angelite is the trade name for a a semi-transparent, glacier blue- to lilac-colored variety of anhydrite. Anhydrite is an evaporite mineral that occurs in extensive deposits where large volumes of sea water were evaporated, or as a vein-filling mineral in hydrothermal deposits. It is often associated with other evaporative minerals such as halite and gypsum.

Angelite deposits were first discovered in Peru in 1987. It has since been mined for use as a lapidary material. The stone is quite soft and is often found containing white specks and small cracks filled with orange-brown inclusions.

Note: Be careful not to clean angelite with water. Evaporative minerals are extremely water-soluble, so contact with water will permanently damage it.
