Mangano Calcite (Pink Calcite)
Wholeness ~ Healing
Stone of forgiveness that brings unconditional love; Assists in developing self-worth and self-acceptance; Healing to nervous conditions, tension and anxiety; Soothing, calming and healing to the heart, stone of empathy.
Gentle powerful energy, calming, eases and heals the heart chakra. Use for channeling and astral travel, and for studying and retaining information learned. Said to magnify energy. Mangano Calcite’s energies enhance and stabilize the heart’s field and makes one potentially more perceptive to everything it touches. Because the heart knows without words, one’s consciousness through the heart field can take the form of empathic identification with whatever one perceives. It is a helpful tool for those who do ‘absent healing’ work because its stimulation of the empathic response leads one into seeing the other’s point of view.
- These are excellent stones for use in conflicts between parents and children. It is suggested to put one of these stones under the mattress of each party and often a spontaneous peace treaty will come about.
- Placing these stones on the window sill of a child’s room or play area infuses the area with supportive, calming and loving energy
The pink coloring in the calcite comes from manganese, a chemical element found in many minerals, which is how it got it’s name. Manganese is a metal with important industrial metal alloy uses, particularly in stainless steels. The main source of mangano calcite is Peru.
In general calcite is a powerful amplifier of energies. It is one of the most common minerals on the face of the Earth, comprising about 4% by weight of the Earth’s crust. Calcite is probably the premier cleanser of stored negative energies in the human system, and works on all levels from the physical to the etheric. This makes it a very purifying stone. It can also be used to clear negativity in the environment, such as a room that it’s in. All of the calcites are good for reducing fear and stress.
