History: The word calcite is from the Latin word calx which means lime. Calcite has been used over the course of history for many purposes as it’s widely available and easily sourced. It’s formed by shells of Marine microorganisms that contain calcite that forms limestone over time. In prehistory, trilobites also had eyes that included calcite lenses, and in the Phanerozoic Period, there were calcite seas and aragonite seas which contained a variety of calcite forming beings. Calcite was even used as a pigment for white paint throughout history. Also used as a dietary calcium supplement for animals, a gentle abrasive cleaner and an additive in the soil. Optical calcite is pure calcite which was used at gun and bomb sights in World War ll.
Where it's found: Found all over the world, Calcite can be found in Britain, United States, Belgium, Peru, Iceland, Czech Republic, Romania and Brazil.
Variations, Rarity and Value: Calcite is a calcium carbonate that has been crystallized in hexagonal form. It rates only a 3 on the Mohs hardness scale making it incredibly soft. It’s not used much in jewelry for this reason.
How to use it: Place it in your home or carry it with you. Put it on the areas of your body that need balancing energy.
