Healing Properties of Blue Calcite
Spiritual: Blue Calcite brings a calm confidence and integrity to our spiritual life. It helps us to articulate our beliefs to ourselves and others and to engage in behaviors that supports our faith. It is particularly good for spiritual practices that involve deep or rhythmic breathing, such as yoga, meditation, chanting and singing. Blue Calcite enhances clairvoyance, telepathy, visions and spiritual dreaming. It brings clarity and focus to the visual aspect of internal spiritual journeys and helps us to put new insights into words and practical action. If we feel frightened or overwhelmed by a spiritual experience, Blue Calcite gently sooths our nerves. Blue Calcite is attuned to the energy of Mother Mary and other mother goddess figures. It is attuned to the Throat (5th) and Third Eye (6th) Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Cancer. It is connected to elements of Wind and Fire and vibrates to the number 8. Serenity.
Emotional: Blue Calcite has a very calming effect on the emotional body and helps us to see reality clearly. For empaths, Blue Calcite can help us differentiate between our own thoughts and emotions, as opposed to other people’s vibrations. This clarity helps us to accept what is, better regulate our emotional reactions, and seize opportunities to create positive and lasting change. Blue Calcite encourages us to be happy and at peace, knowing that we will choose actions that serve the Highest Good. Blue Calcite is particularly helpful for anyone who tends towards a fatalistic outlook or victim mentality. It gently shakes us out of our emotional lethargy and/or anxiety and reminds us that while we can’t control other people, we do get to control our response to the world around us. Blue Calcite is a wonderful stone for communication, especially for tense situations that need careful management. Blue Calcite gives us confidence and hope that everything will work out for the best.
Mental: Blue Calcite is a fabulous stone for anyone who is actively “re-wiring” the brain. It helps us to stop obsessive and negative thinking and to focus instead on thoughts which bring peace and prosperity. Blue Calcite is particularly good for helping us create clear, beautiful and honest affirmations. Blue Calcite remind us to repeat our affirmations regularly until they become a part of our psyche and replaced unhealthy thoughts. Blue Calcite is also a wonderful muse for inspiring creativity and thinking “outside of the box.” It helps us to take our creative imaginings and put them into words. It also eases the creative process, helping us quickly settle into “the flow.” Blue Calcite is a particularly good talisman for writers, musicians and abstract artists. Blue Calcite enhances memory and helps us recognize the good habits which set us up for success.
Physical: Blue Calcite is recommended for anyone who needs to conscious relax and sooth the physical body. Blue Calcite has a sweet and comforting energy that helps us to calm down. It gently focuses our attention on deep breathing, which in turn relaxes muscles, reduces blood pressure and brings pain relief. If we have been stressed for a long time or suffer from chronic pain, Blue Calcite reminds us how to relax and helps us practice until it becomes part of our natural rhythm again. Blue Calcite is especially helpful for managing chronic headaches, since relaxation techniques can reduce the frequency of attacks and help with pain management during an attack. As a talisman, Blue Calcite encourages us to calmly address problems associated with the lungs, throat and eyes. Blue Calcite is also recommended for yoga, meditation and any healing modality that focuses on breath.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
Mineralogy of Blue Calcite
Mineral Family: Carbonites
Chemical Composition: Ca[CO3]
Cleavage: Perfect, rhombohedral
Crystal System: Hexagonal/triagonal
Form/Habit: Scalenohedral, rhombohedral
Fracture: Subconchoidal, brittle
Luminescence: Pink, strong (long wave) / Blue, strong (short wave)
Transparency: Transparent to opaque
Location: Calcite is found in virtually every country. The most important source for Blue Calcite is in Madagascar.
Mineral Family: Blue Calcite is a Carbonate mineral. Carbonates are an important part of the Earth’s crust and are found in sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks. Carbonates are minerals which contain the carbonate group CO3 as their basic structural unit. They form in a trigonal system with one carbon atom centrally located between 3 oxygen atoms. While there are over 70 types of Carbonate minerals, the most common are Dolomite, Siderite, and Calcite.
Formation: Calcite is formed when liquid calcium, shell, coral, and algal debris settle onto the muddy bottom of a saltwater ocean or lake. From there they are gradually solidified into a single mass during diagenesis, the process of transforming loose sediment into a sedimentary rock. The resulting rock is typically Limestone, which is richly laced with small Calcite minerals. Later on, if the Limestone is subjected to heat and pressure, it can become Marble, a metamorphic rock. The heat and pressure of the metamorphic process causes larger Calcite crystals to grow. In rare cases, Calcite may be found as an accessory mineral in igneous rocks alongside calcium-rich Feldspar.
Mining: Calcite is a principal crystal extracted in commercial Limestone mines. It is mined in shallow pits at the primary deposit where the Calcite still has its original relationship with the host rock. After being extracted, Calcite is sorted into different grades depending on color. From a commercial viewpoint, the best variety is pure white, which can be pulverized into a powder and used to make rubber, paint, cement, textile goods, and especially ceramics.
Enhancements: All Blue Calcite is natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
History of Blue Calcite
Blue Calcite was “discovered” relatively recently by the metaphysical community and so it was not included in any early lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers. Calcite is an extremely common and soft mineral which makes it an excellent choice for carving, both in ancient times and today. It is certainly possible that many of the carvings had healing and spiritual purposes.
Most Calcites are found in Limestone. In fact, the word “Calcite” comes from the Greek word chalix, meaning lime.

I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.
In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals. The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows. The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community. They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.
In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar.
