Blue Calcite | Stone Information, Healing Properties, Uses

Blue calcite is a mineral that is known for its beautiful blue color and its soothing, calming properties. It is a carbonate mineral with the chemical formula CaCO3, and is often found in sedimentary rocks such as limestone and dolomite.

Blue calcite is prized for its striking blue color, which can range from light blue to deep blue, and its translucent to opaque appearance. It is often used as a decorative stone in carvings, sculptures, and other objects, as well as in jewelry such as pendants and earrings.

In addition to its aesthetic properties, blue calcite is also highly valued for its calming and healing properties. It is believed to help with emotional healing, and can promote feelings of relaxation, tranquility, and peacefulness. Blue calcite is also thought to help with communication and self-expression, and can help to clear negative energy and promote positive energy flow.

Blue calcite is found in several locations around the world, including Mexico, the United States, and Canada. It is often found in association with other minerals such as quartz, gypsum, and pyrite. Its unique color and healing properties make blue calcite a popular choice for those seeking natural remedies and spiritual healing.

These light blue stones can be very difficult to identify with each other as they all naturally have a very similar appearance. The varieties that are most similar to Blue Calcite are Celestine (Celestite) and Angelite. The easiest way to tell if your supposed Calcite is Celestine is to weigh the stone. Celestine will usually be heavier on average, weighing about 1.5 times the amount of Calcite. Celestine is also a bit more translucent compared to Calcite. Angelite is another tough stone to compare to Calcite. To this problem, we turn to the sun to assist us. Compare the way the light shines through both angelite and calcite. The blue Calcite will have a more waxy and translucent shimmer while Angelite will have a more opaque finish, and may appear a little darker blue. Angelite also has a very even light blue color while blue calcite has different variations of blue as well as white inclusions, usually in a scaly pattern.

Do not use crystal healing in place of your medicine/healthcare.
