Calcite is calcium carbonate mineral and one of the most varied crystals with a wide variety of forms / colors on the planet, they are found on every continent. When it also has Cobalt present, it is the gorgeous bright pink color. It is said that regardless of the type of calcite, this mineral carries with it very gentle energy. Crystal healers say it helps to remove blockages, helping one move beyond their patterns. It is also said calcite is connected to the fire element, assisting in moving energy through the chakras (energy centers in the body) and the meridians. With Cobalt Calcite being pink, many energy healers connect this to the heart chakra and have also said it is used for inner child work.
These rare bright Cobalt Calcite came from the earth in Morocco, specifically the Agoudal Mine. This one weighs 1lb 1oz and measures about 5 x 3 x 2 inches. I love the back of it with the layers while the front has crystalized formations.
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.
