I love the way optical calcite dances in the light, bursting into rainbows as you gaze at it. It helps to balance the energy system while infusing you with hope, optimism and joy. The rainbows are camera shy the rainbows are more dynamic in person.
Optical calcite is stunningly beautiful with reflective surface and interior rainbows. It is commonly found in clear, yellow and occasionally pink or green. Optical calcites are not the easiest to photograph and are always much more beautiful in person. Optical calcite often creates holographic rainbows in the interior, and in some pieces will reflect a holographic image of of anything it is held against. The energy is vibrant, uplifting, and explosive as well as very bright, and clean. Calcite is a very energetic mineral that aligns and energizes all of the chakras. It is known for its ability to blast through energy blocks, but it yet has surprisingly gentle energy. Clear optical calcite is excellent for opening and clearing the crown chakra, while yellow optical calcite works on both the crown and solar plexus, aligning the physical and spiritual bodies. Pink optical calcite harmonizes and rejuvenates the heart chakra assisting one to accept unconditional love while green works towards healing the physical body.
Rainbows occur when light is refracted causing a prismatic effect, usually along a plane or inclusions within a crystal. The refraction is often temperature sensitive causing the rainbow to appear and disappear. It is believed that these crystals exhibit the closest manifestation of pure white light that can be witnessed on the physical plane. Rainbow crystals are used during meditation to escort us into the realm of the pure white light and can bring depth and clarity to dreams, help manifest wishes, and overcome negativity to be able to love life in the present moment.
Rainbows bring happiness. They help deal with negativity and help to maintain the constant awareness of love. Because of the rainbows, they produce the full spectrum of colors, the white light of healing and perfections being dispersed into the individual rays of the rainbow. Rainbow quartz can be used on all chakras.
Calcite is a family of calcium carbonates that occurs in a wide range of colors and formations. Most commonly it occurs in opaque masses but it can occur in a wide array of crystalline habits. Calcite is a soft mineral, with a Mohs hardness of 3. Because of its relative softness it is often carved or polished. Rough pieces are usually given an acid bath which softens the rough edges and give the stones a silky sheen. Calcite has an amazing energy that refreshes and revitalizes, yet is still gentle. They help to remove blockages and break up old patterns. The wide range of colors ensures there is a calcite for every chakra. These strong yet gentle healers are easy to work with no matter your age, and even vibrate well with our feathered and furry friends.
