Mineralogy of Gold Calcite
Mineral Family: Carbonites

Cleavage: Perfect, rhombohedral
Crystal System: Hexagonal/triagonal
Form/Habit: Scalenohedral, rhombohedral

Luminescense: Pink, strong (long wave) / Blue, strong (short wave)

Location: Calcite is found in virtually every country. The most important source for Gold Calcite is in Mexico.
Mineral Family: Gold 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 Gold Calcite is natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
Synonyms: Honey Calcite, Yellow Calcite
History of Gold Calcite
Gold 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.

It shows us how to stand in our full power and to act with justice and mercy, to bring about the Highest Good for all. Gold Calcite brings abundance and prosperity on all levels and is particularly helpful for banishing “scarcity” belief systems. Gold Calcite is attuned to the Solar Plexus and Crown Chakra and linked to the astrological sign of Cancer. It is connected to the element of Fire and vibrates to the number 8.
Emotional: Gold Calcite helps us to stay balanced and in control. It is especially beneficial for anyone who feels “overwhelmed” or has numerous tasks or roles that require personal attention. Gold Calcite keeps us firmly in our power and able to do what needs to be done with grace and skill.
