Calcite is a master of simplicity by way of complexity. There are said to be more than 300 crystal forms of calcite and these can combine to produce a thousand or more different crystal variations. Calcite increases and amplifies energy. This makes it an excellent stone for distance healing like Reiki, as well as other types of healing. Calcite relates to Venus, the Moon, and the sign of Cancer.
Calcite is a protecting, grounding and centering stone, which can help bring inner peace. Since calcite also promotes creativity and imagination, this inner peace can be quite “visual” in nature. Calcite’s mystical properties vary depending on it’s color. Calcite is helpful in reducing feelings of fear and stress. Calcite is probably the ultimate cleanser of stored negative energies in the body, and works on all levels from the physical to the auric. This makes it a very purifying stone. It can also be used to clear negativity in your body, or personal environment, like the room that it’s in.
Calcite is a peaceful stone and is considered one of the most gentle healing stones. It is also often called the “stone of the mind” and believed to provide supportive energies during times of mental changes or big transitions. Calcite is ideal for clearing out the old to make way for the new.
