Calcite Meaning and Healing Properties

Introduction to Calcite

Calcite is a very common mineral that is formed in many kinds of rocks: limestone, marble, travertine, clay ash, and stalactites and stalagmites in caves. Calcite crystallizes in a low-temperature mineralization solution, has a variety of shapes and colors, and often forms twin crystals. Calcite is also the main component of the shells that form marine organisms, which means that when these marine organisms sink to the bottom of the sea after death, more calcium-rich rocks such as chalk will be formed. The healing properties of calcite change with its shape, and it has rapid and multifaceted energy.

Identification and Maintenance of Calcite

  • Calcite has a low hardness and a silky halo.
  • Calcite feels soapy and creamy.
  • Most of the crystals of calcite have characteristic natural shapes, similar to dog’s tartar and nail head stone. Double crystals are often seen in these two kinds of calcite.
  • If you look at the color of calcite alone, it is easy to be confused with many other spars.
  • If it falls on the ground or is subjected to a lot of pressure, the calcite will split into several prisms along the cleavage plane.
