The interesting thing about calcite crystals such as this sample, is they have little to do with the rocks in which they are found. Rocks that are fractured or deformed form spaces or cavities where calcium rich water flows through & precipitates crystals. This sample represents a calcium carbonate rich fluid flowing through the open spaces, slow precipitating Calcite crystals.
This piece has beautiful bladed crystals typical of Calcite. One thing I love the most about Calcite is the fact that it effervesces when diluted hydrochloric acid is dropped on it. Meaning it fizzes or bubbles. The blades on this piece are captivating & really make for a unique piece in your collection.
Calcite is a protecting, grounding, & centering stone, and can help bring inner peace. Since Calcite also promotes creativity & imagination, this inner peace it can bring is a vibrant one.
