Healing Properties of Mangano Calcite

Spiritual: Mangano Calcite has a wonderfully soft energy that connects us directly with the essence of Divine Love.  It has an angelic quality that reassures us that we are safe and that our Guardian Angels are watching over our path.  It increases our capability to be truly compassionate toward ourselves and others.  Mangano Calcite teaches us to look at all beings with Love and Acceptance. It increases both our intuition and empathy.  It inspires forgiveness and can be used to release old karmic debts and to allow ourselves to truly move forward if the past is filled with pain.  For younger people, Mangano Calcite helps us believe in beautiful possibilities and to have hope for the future.  For older people, it gently releases jaded fears and removes feelings of helplessness and hopelessness.  Mangano Calcite teaches us how to spiritually and emotionally grow up, so that we can become the safe adults that other people can look to for support and guidance.  Mangano Calcite is attuned to the Heart Chakra and linked to the astrological sign of Cancer. It is connected to the element of Fire and vibrates to the number 8.

Emotional: Mangano Calcite has an exceptionally soothing effect on the emotional body. It helps us to safely connect with our emotions and to let go of emotional patterns and beliefs which do not serve us. Despite its soft energy, it is a powerful ally for anyone dealing with trauma or raw grief.  It envelopes us in a warm feeling of love and security, promising us that even if everything is awful right now, it will get better and life will be sweet again. Mangano Calcite offers us a sense a sense of stability if we feel unsure about ourselves or the world.  It doesn’t rush us or dismiss our emotions.  Instead, it quietly supports us while we regain our emotional balance and find our way back to peace.  It also teaches us how to hold that kind of loving space for other people while they are working through big emotions.  It is an excellent stone for therapists, counselors, social workers as well as anyone who regularly deals with emotional trauma.  

Mental: Mangano Calcite is very calming for the mind. It helps us to see past our limitations and be open to sweet possibilities. It brings us wisdom to know how to best handle situations so as to bring about the Highest Good. Mangano Calcite encourages us to be more honest and authentic in our communication and to actively deal with problems rather than simply burying them. It can help us see that all things happen for a reason and are perfect in the moment to help us grow.  Mangano Calcite is particularly good if we are exploring difficult childhood or family dynamics.  It supports us in doing this deep personal work so we can find the adult understanding we need, rather than clinging to childlike assumptions and outdated patterns.  Mangano Calcite helps us to have compassion and empathy for all the people involved, while also reminding us that we can also set boundaries, because this is one of the ways we show compassion to ourselves. 

Physical: Mangano Calcite is recommended for anyone who has suffered trauma and who’s nerve system needs soothing.  It can help us calm down and relax and is particularly good to keep close at night when our mental defenses are usually lower.  It is particularly recommended after nightmares when everything feels frightening.  If the traumatic event has led to PTSD, Mangano Calcite gently advocates for our mental health and encourages us to seek treatment.  If we, or a loved one, is resistant to treatment, Mangano Calcite helps us all stay patient and hold space, until the idea of treatment feels safe.  Mangano Calcite reminds us that the body and mind are linked, and that problems with one can negatively affect the other.  Likewise, bringing healing to the body or mind, positively affects the other.   Mangano Calcite is a sweet talisman for the heart and nervous system.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Mineral Family: Mangano Calcite is the pink variety of Calcite, which 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 Mangano Calcite is natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.

History of Mangano Calcite

Mangano 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.

The Lapidary

This Mangano Calcite was polished in Lima, Peru.    

The business is owned by a pair of brothers, one manages the mine, while the other manages the lapidary.

Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly.

The business is also the direct-importer & sells exclusively at large gem shows.

Sourcing Relationship

I first met the owner of the mine and lapidary in 2014 at the Gem and Mineral Show in Tucson, Arizona.  At that time, he was set up with a single table and the only major Gem Show he attended was in Tucson.  While most lapidaries sell their tumbled stone in pre-packaged bags by the pound or kilo, this seller allowed me to cherry pick through his stock and buy only the best.  Since then, his spot in Tucson has expanded to four tables under a tent and he now sells at two of the major European shows.  It has been fun to watch our businesses grow.     

In 2018, I asked the owner if he would be willing to help connect me with a rural school in Peru near his mine.  I told him that I wanted to “give back” to the communities that provided these beautiful crystals.  He was pleased by my request and later that year introduced me to the principle of a suitable Peruvian school.  We hope to begin supporting this school in the 2021-2022 school year.
