Henry Mason The Seven Secrets of Crystal Talismans lists aragonite as a Dispeller/Restorer, Builder. He says the White Ray is illumination, natural cycles, sensing things we can't see.
*Very interesting book, btw!

thanks cardlady it must be the illumination part that was drawing me to the crystals.

I found something that shows caves containing the crystal.

I love aragonite in all its colors and crystal formations! Have you seen the twinned kind?

On the scientific side, it's actually a polymorph of calcite.

ETA: Pretty interesting that when it's buried, it reverts back to calcite ~ I wonder what could be made/said of that in terms of use?
