These Optical Calcite Crystals have a vibrant clarity and are infused with rainbows. They love to play with light.
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.
Rhomboid Calcite displays six parallel planes, all connected by one another. Each of the four, six sided parallelograms exist in their own unique plane of reality, yet each is intricately attached to the other parallel sides. If a Rhomboid shaped piece of Calcite is broken, all of the fragmented pieces would be rhomboid forms (flat parallel sided faces). If one of the broken pieces were further broken, the new pieces would also represent the original rhomboid form. On an atomical level, the atoms are forming together in microscopic rhomboid shapes. This basic unity of Calcite's atomical patterning is repeated endlessly throughout the body of the crystal. This rare view of harmony and order as identical geometric shapes unite in one crystal, teaches us one of the natural laws of the universe; that the whole exists within a whole, the smallest unit representing the largest and comprising the foundation for structures of grandeur. Calcite can help to create a conscious bridge of spiritual understanding into circumstances or situations that are challenging here on the earth plane by bringing spirit into matter. Calcite greatly assists in gaining insights into why certain circumstances in life have been attracted and what the spiritual significance and soul lessons are. We can work with Calcite crystals when we cannot see our way out of a cycle or pattern, or when we become so immersed in the physical plane reality that our consciousness fails to see the divine meaning. The crystals help us gain the insight to accept the responsibility to learn the true lessons involved in life's experiences. This helps us to see possibilities and solutions which might otherwise elude us. Not only does it bridge the physical with the spiritual, it actually assists in merging the two realities together as one by dissolving the illusion of separation. Rhomboid Calcite crystals can help us when consciously reconstructing our reality by holding them, carrying them, placing them on your third eye or heart centers, or by gazing into them while meditating on their perfected parallel forms. The Calcite crystals in the Rhomboid form are the best tools to assist in linking parallel realities. In Calcite's softness and vulnerability lies a symbolic lesson. How unattached Calcite is to any one physical form for no matter what happens or how small it gets, it loses nothing because its primal integrity of spiritual force is maintained. Calcite shows us that the whole exists within the multidimensional perfection of the universe proving to our senses that there is a profound order in the universe.
