This mineral is very common worldwide and has a widespread variety of colors. Calcite has a hardness of 3 and is best recognized by its high reactivity with acids, such as vinegar. Brighter calcites can be found in a small area of Mexico. Pink calcite is found in Peru.
This white calcite egg is perfect to have around for the holidays. Its texture is smooth and polished all around. I love the marbled look and the little brown spot that this egg has included within in. It would look lovely in the living room or on a bedside table.
