Calcite is crystalline calcium carbonate largely formed from the shells of sea organisms that build over time into limestone. After even more time it is transformed again into marble. It can be found at the core of many rocks. Calcite is found worldwide and is fluorescent, sometimes even transparent or translucent. Its association with foreign atoms and minerals cause drastic colour variations and dilutions of character. It is often compared to the spiritual evolution of humankind as both go through many transformations along their journey. There are as many natural colours to calcite as there are chakras on the body, conveniently one to balance every energy centre.
Calcite works by your intuition. The colour you are drawn to would be the right one for you to start with. Once the body has dealt with this, you will automatically be drawn to another one. Gradually you will find, that just like the Calcite changed and evolved, so will you. This is by learning to trust in your body and your mind’s own abilities. Calcite alleviates fear and stress. It is considered to be a balancer of the male and female energies. It helps us to gain our composure and gives us control over our emotions. It can encourage us to simply ‘be’ in order to receive inspiration and guidance. It assists in decision-making and clarifies dreams, visions and channelling.
Blue Calcite is the gentle Calcite. It works on the throat chakra, giving clarity of speech and aiding the verbalisation of thought. The structure of the mineral absorbs energy and appears to act as a filter. It returns back to the person working with the mineral, their original energy without the angst, stress, frustration, or ‘static’-like energy that can cause unrest or dis-ease. A calmer, yet stronger delivery of speech or truth is then able to be spoken. Public speakers, singers and actors, for example, benefit from having Blue Calcite as a friend. Blue Calcite magic is that it aligns the crown chakra, third eye and throat chakra which aid one’s concentration on articulation of speech. In healing, Blue Calcite as a calming mineral, is believed to help lower blood pressure and aid the lungs, thyroid and larynx. In the aura, especially in the emotional body, it helps to protect and buffer negative attack.
