The mineral calcite is found sprinkled across the world and at practically every source you will find calcite in a different, dazzling color. Stemming from the Greek word chalix meaning "lime," calcite is found in nearly any hue of the rainbow, from red to yellow to violet to green. As diverse as calcite's color can be, so is its form. Calcite crystals occur naturally in an infinite variety of shapes, including the spiky stalactites and stalagmites found in caves, so every piece of calcite jewelry has its own life and vibrancy.
Calcite: Earthen Rainbow
When looking through a piece of translucent calcite, objects appear in double. This double refraction further distinguishes calcite from other minerals and can make wearing calcite jewelry even more engaging.
Calcite is renowned in some circles for its soothing, spiritual qualities along with healing properties. It is said that wearing calcite jewelry brings peace of mind, quelling mental upheaval.
