Calcite is a stone of spirituality, related to the higher spheres of consciousness. It is capable of boosting the energy of the living space, as well as the internal vital energy. Calcite is also suitable for accelerating the psychophysical development of children. This stone brings joy, wholeheartedness, and love.

Calcite comes in orange, yellow, golden-yellow, apple-green, violet, red, pink, blue, gray, brown, black, and white color. It is primarily a transparent stone with a characteristic waxy luster. The opaque Calcite specimens tend to have stripes.

Notable occurrences are in the USA, Mexico, India, Italy, Turkey, Brazil, and Peru.

The most widespread form of Calcite is a 3D parallelogram, often called a Parallelepiped. Basically, it is a body formed out of 6 planes that are parallel to each other in pairs. In the spiritual sense, the geometry of Calcite represents the interaction between the parallel planes of existence, which, although distinct, are still connected to each other. Meditation with Calcite helps us realize that the spiritual realms are not so separate from our everyday reality. They intertwine with it all the time. This stone also teaches that the past and the future are contained in the present. The lessons of Calcite on the physical plane constantly remind us that we always have alternative options and ways of action at our disposal.

Calcite can help us ground the attained spiritual understanding into our physical reality. It helps us face the challenges that lie ahead of us. It is never easy to see the deeply rooted mental and behavioral patterns and to unmask all those ways in which we conduct ourselves. It is also not easy to get rid of the unwanted habits that determine our life and destiny, such as criticism, bitterness, anger, or resentment. Calcite is really helpful in this respect, and that is why this is a very suitable meditation stone.

Here is a nice beneficial exercise you can do with this stone. Hold and gently rotate a piece of transparent Calcite in our hands. If you visualize the upper Calcite planes as spiritual and the lower as your physical reality, the rotation will symbolically blend them together, helping you to go more deeply into your meditation. The ultimate aim of this exercise should be to come to the realization that more often than not the spiritual and the physical realities come together, and when they do, our everyday life becomes less black and white, taking on the other colors of the spectrum. However, during this meditation, you should not be fixated on this specific goal only; you should stay open to other realizations and insights as well.

Our physical body can greatly benefit from this stone. Calcite facilitates the absorption of calcium in the bones, helping the bones and skeletal system. It also stimulates the blood coagulation and heals the body tissue. On the level of the etheric body, Calcite cleanses the chakras, energizes them, and balances their function.

That is why this stone insists on originality, whether we are accomplished sculptors, artists, novelists, poets, or we are just approaching our own life as an artwork-in-making.

Is calcite a birthstone for some zodiac sign?

sunnyray says:

It is not. At least not according to the official charts. I believe it is suitable for Cancer, and to a lesser extent Libra and Leo.

CTO says:

I bought a piece of orange calcite and fell asleep with it in my left hand. The next morning there was a yellowish tint in that hand. What is that from? Did I buy a died or fake piece of stone? I'm worried there was something toxic to make it that color.

sunnyray says:

Some calcites are indeed dyed. Hard to tell about the color type, though.
