Calcite increases and amplifies energy. This makes it an excellent stone for distance healing, as well as other types of healing. One of the energies it amplifies is learning abilities, and thus is a great stone for students. Calcite is a protecting, grounding and centering stone, and can help bring inner peace. Since calcite also promotes creativity and imagination, this inner peace it can bring is a vibrant one. All calcites are helpful in lessening of fear and reducing stress. Calcite is probably the premier cleanser of stored negative energies in the human system, and works on all levels from the physical to the etheric. This makes it a very purifying stone. Orange Calcite will help to balance the emotions, remove fear, overcome depression as well as simply dissolving problems standing in your way of achieving your highest potential. It is particularly helpful in removing phobias, as it will help to restore mental and emotional equilibrium.
Calcite is truly one of the best collection type crystals. There are lots of interesting forms and varieties as well as colorful and beautiful crystals to collect. It is generally easy to identify using its rhombohedral cleavage and reaction to acid and makes for a great classroom example of these properties. The name Calcite is from the Greek word "chalx" which means "lime". Environmentally, calcite is very important and may have been quite important to the successful development of our planet in the past. By pulling carbon dioxide out of the sea water, this biological activity allows more of the carbon dioxide in the air to dissolve in the sea water and thus acts as a carbon dioxide filter for the planet. With its many different forms, environments, associations and colors, a collector could never have all possible combinations of calcite covered. Calcite is among the most varied and abundant crystals, and they happen in a variety of forms and colors.
Color: Extremely variable but generally white or colorless or with light shades of yellow, orange, blue, pink, red, brown, green, black and gray. Occasionally iridescent. Luster: Vitreous to resinous to dull in massive forms Transparency: Transparent to translucent Crystal System: Trigonal; bar 3 2/m Crystal Habits: Extremely variable with almost any trigonal form possible. Common among calcite crystals are the scalenohedron, rhombohedron, hexagonal prism, and pinacoid. Combinations of these and over three hundred other forms can make a multitude of crystal shapes, but always trigonal or pseudo-hexagonal. Cleavage: Perfect in three directions, forming rhombohedrons Fracture: Conchoidal Hardness: 3 Specific Gravity: 2.7 Streak: White Associated Minerals: Fluorite, quartz, barite, sphalerite, galena, celestite, sulfur, gold, copper, emerald, apatite, biotite, zeolites, several metal sulfides, other carbonates and borates and many other minerals. Best Field Indicators: Crystal habit, reaction to acid, abundance, hardness, double refraction and especially cleavage.

Our Listing Photographs
What you see IS what you get at Kidz Rocks! Besides using high quality Nikon lenses, we use 4500 color temperature 100 CRI lighting. 4500 temperature being the closest to natural light and CRI being Color Rendering Index or a light sources ability to faithfully render the colors.

While many stores do not disclose treatments done to certain types of minerals after they are mined, we disclose all treatments in our listing descriptions. If the product listing does not say it was treated then it is a 100% natural rock just as it came out of the ground. Treatments are not always something to shy away from as some do. Many treatments simply reproduce the exact same process that mother nature uses and/or cleans the specimen so it may be enjoyed.
