This beautiful calcite came from the earth in Mexico. It was not polished by a machine, but by a dip in a hydrochloric acid solution to dissolve a thin layer of the calcite, leaving a smooth, lustrous, glassy surface. Although calcite is slightly more dense than quartz, it is actually much softer - just a 3 on the Mohs hardness scale. Keep it dry & away from harder stones that may scratch or damage them.
