How to Identify Blue Calcite  
There are a few stones that are commonly confused with Blue Calcite, including Celestine (aka Celestite) and Angelite due to their similar appearance. The easiest way to tell if the stone is Blue Calcite or Celestine is to weigh it. Celestine will be heavier on average, usually around 1.5 times the amount of Calcite. Celestine is also more translucent then Calcite. You can also compare the way the light shines through both Angelite and Calcite. The Blue Calcite will have a more waxy shimmer while Angelite will have a more opaque finish, and may appear a more muted or "grayish" blue.
