Calcite Crystal is one of the more abundant minerals on earth, comprising about 4% of total minerals. This is one of the reasons why calcite crystal has been so widely researched. It is found virtually everywhere but it is mostly mined in New Jersey, Tennessee, Illinois, and other states in the United States, Brazil, Mexico, Germany, India and England.
You have probably seen calcite crystal in nature numerous times without knowing exactly what it was. Calcite crystal is found in the little veins and streaks found in Granite and Limestone and most “rocks” mined for use in ground cover (to prevent erosion), driveways, roads and such, will be speckled with crushed calcite crystal. It makes you wonder if the road crews ever think about the fact they are helping to spread the healing calcite crystal with every road they lay.
Calcite crystal comes in many colors. Clear or coloreless calcite is the base stone. All calcite crystals have the meanings and properties of clear calcite. Each color also has some of it’s own properties. Calcite crystal is known as an energy amplifier. It clears and activates all the chakras and helps you remember information you learned during Out of Body experiences and during Astral Travel.
Pure calcite crystal is colorless. As the crystals are forming additional minerals from the area can become mixed in the solution causing the calcite crystal to be colored. The more common colors are blue, clear, green, orange, pink, red and yellow. These additional minerals are what makes the calcite crystal properties different within each color.
Optical calcite crystal has a unique ability to cause images to appear doubled when you look through the stone. The easiest way to see this affect is to place an optical calcite over a line drawn on a piece of paper or on a line of print. When you look through the crystal, the line will appear doubled.
