Typically forming in masses or dog-tooth formations, these crystals show long prism faces with rhombohedra terminations.
Calcite is a Calcium Carbonate, the same mineral that forms shells and the nacre of a pearl. Many banded varieties are actually aragonite, another CaCO mineral. Colourless in its purest state, calcite owes its colours to various trace elements present during formation.
MOH's hardness: 3
Crystal system: Trigonal
Although crystals have survived hundreds of thousands to millions of years (wow) in our earth they are still delicate and must be treated with TLC.
Calcite has perfect rhombohedral cleavage. What's that? Well it means there's a weakness in the atomic bonds in certain crystallographic directions... What does that mean? Basically it "cleaves" or breaks with relatively low impact or pressure. Try not to let it fall or bang against other crystals. Treat it with care.

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators.
The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing.
Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.
We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
