These Honey Calcite teacher crystals have a soft, waxy appearance that reminds me of melted wax. So apropos, seeing as teachers are a light in this world, passing knowledge along like a candle flame to another.
The Magic of Calcite
Calcite Crystals have been an interesting topic here. A recent study shows that, "Calcite microcrystals have been positively identified, in substantial quantities, in every one of 20 human pineal glands studied ... These crystals bear a striking resemblance to those found in the human inner ear, which have been shown to exhibit piezoelectric qualities." I couldn't find the actual scientific paper, but I did find a reference here. Also, in case you are not familiar with the term, piezoelectricity, it is the ability to generate an electric field (electric potential) in response to pressure or heat. I'll leave it to you to explore the meaning of this for you ... to me it feels much deeper and more connected than all of the scientific information and metaphysical conjecture combined. Perhaps the Calcite Crystals will whisper a clue in their song.
Calcite vibrates to the number 8 and is the astrological sign of Cancer. Calcite is a stone of Water. It is formed in water and is water soluble. It is calcium carbonate and is a very soft, susceptible mineral. It should be treated with great care as it is sensitive to heat, water, sun and will easily cleave, break or chip. Calcite is like a new born star-child who is just getting acclimated to the earth and must be treated with attuned and sensitive care or it is liable to fall apart. But, when properly cared for and aligned with, many wonders can be revealed. Calcite crystallizes into over 700 varieties of formant a rainbow of colours and has the capacity to reflect a variety of colour frequencies. Placing the appropriate colour calcite placed on the corresponding chakra, not only clears and activates that chakra, but provides a "sweeping" action which will clear the remaining centers. Calcite releases electrical impulses when placed under pressure, and is an energy amplifier. It is said to help the mind and body to remember: The, mind to remember information brought to bear during astral travel and channeling experiences; the body, to remember the state of perfection during dis-ease in order to return to the natural state of flawlessness. Calcite is a world teacher for all of humanity. It is an excellent stone when studying the arts and sciences. Calcite's most important lesson is the "art of being". Its true significance cannot be grasped by the mind. It extends beyond linear mental association and into the realm of true knowing. When attuning to and working with Calcite, it is best to simply be with it, allowing yourself to become clear and open.
