Mineral Properties: Calcites are a calcium carbonate mineral. They are among the most varied and abundant crystals, and they occur in a wide variety of forms and colors. The molecular structure of the crystals is rhombohedral, but specimens can appear as scalenohedrons, rhombohedrons, prisms, masses and stalactites.
Crystal Healing: If one could work with only one type of crystal for all the various healing and spiritual energies, Calcite would be a tempting choice. The variety of colors and vibrations emanated by the different species of Calcite is rich, and virtually all Calcites do their work with gentleness.
