Calcite crystals are some of the Earth’s best energetic cleansers. While this gemstone can be found in many colors and varieties, all share the ability to dispel negativity from one’s environment and raise their inner spirits. Calcite releases self-imposed limitations to bring fresh realities into your being. By linking your intellectual and emotional sides, these crystals allow you to better understand your thoughts and feelings. In turn, this removes internal sources of stress and frees you to embrace yourself and the present.
The name Calcite is derived from the Latin word calcit, meaning “lime.” It is notably present in marble and limestone formations.
Given that calcite is so often present in marble and limestone, it has been used as a base for architecture and construction throughout history.
It is believed that calcite stones make up over a third of the Earth’s crust.
Calcite is a polymorph of calcium carbonate. It can be found in many different shapes, sizes, and colors all over the world.
The chakra association of calcite depends on its form and coloration. As such, it can be associated with any and all chakras.
You can place calcite in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.
Depending on its form and color, calcite crystals can be associated with any signs in the zodiac.
Calcite’s healing properties can vary based on its type. In general, it is believed to be capable of detoxifying several parts of the body, including the blood, skin, and digestive organs.
