There are over 800 varieties of Calcite crystals. This extremely common crystal is comprised of carbonate minerals and is formed with a hexagonal crystal system. The Mohs hardness scale defines “3” as Calcite. It can be found in a variety of rocks and is considered a ‘ubiquitous mineral’ by some scientists, as it is found all over the world. The largest concentrations of Blue Calcite are found in Mexico and South Africa. Calcite is found within limestone and marble, two common stones that make up a large portion of the earth’s crust. Calcite is also a primary mineral component in cave formations.
Calcite is vitreous in appearance and can be found in a range of color from white or colorless to red, green, yellow, blue, and orange. Calcite and Aragonite actually share a chemical composition, but their different crystal structures are what separates them.
Metaphysical & Spiritual Properties
Calcite in general is a powerful amplifier of energies. 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 forms of Calcite are good for reducing fear and stress.
Blue Calcite provides a gentle blue ray energy field around the holder. Use this energy to heighten your psychic ability, intuition, telepathy, visions, dream state and astro travel. It works to remove blockages in the throat chakra.
If one is struggling to find a solution, Blue Calcite can facilitate that ‘aha’ moment of knowing. It helps one understand how one’s words and thoughts impact one’s reality – even if those thoughts and words are unspoken. It can assist one in refocusing the mind on positive thoughts and ideas and is an excellent stone for supporting work with affirmations.
