The calcite group is home to various carbonate minerals that are isomorphous with one another.
Colour: Calcite forms in a wide variety of colours and crystal forms. More commonly colourless, white, yellow, orange, blue, green and pink.
Common geological occurrences: World wide.
Crystallography: Crystals can be singular crystals, clusters or as masses with smaller ‘cleaved’ pieces showing smooth/flat cleaved (‘broken') surfaces and rhombohedral habit. Calcite may also be found in acicular, fibrous, stalactite, stalagmite or globular habits.
Observations: Stones can be transparent to translucent, show banding and have a waxy/resinous lustre. Transparent crystals exhibit strong double refraction doubling images when placed on top.
Crystal care: Calcite is a very brittle stone, cleaving and scratching easily so it must always be handled with care. If carrying calcite with you, always keep protected in a padded pouch.

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.
