Anhydrite literally means “without water” and chemically is related to angelite. The energy however is quite different, where angelite is soft and serene the purple anhydrite is much more lively, picking you up, yet not buzzing you off the planet. Many of the pieces have unusual combinations of mineral, including blue calcite, orange feldspar, black tourmaline and deep green epidote. Pieces with calcite help one keep balance on all levels especially the physical, smoothing energy to a nice even level over all chakras and the orange feldspar adds a depth emotionally balancing energy. Pieces with epidote help you break through blockages to enhance your spiritual growth, while pieces with black tourmaline keep you clear of negative energies while you work.
