The ancient stories tell us that Aragonite was associated with the Goddess Amaterasu, the Shinto Goddess of the Sun and all life created and sustained by it. Amaterasu’s brother, The Storm God, it is told, unleashed great violence in the Heavens and on Earth. Shocked and ashamed, Amaterasu fled, depriving the Earth and other planets of light and warmth.
Although the other Shinto deities begged Amaterasu from exile, nothing would console her, until Uzume, Goddess of Mirth, performed an outrageous dance that had all the Kami (Shintu Deities) laughing and giggling. Amaterasu curious about all the commotion, peeped from her hideaway to see what was happening. Uzume, then revealed a mirror to Amaterasu, and when she saw her own radiance in the presence of all the Kami, she was able to understand her light as a counter balance to her brother’s darkness, and realized she was very much needed. With this acceptance and understanding, Amaterasu and the Sun shone through the darkness.
