Healing Properties of Gold Calcite

Spiritual: Gold Calcite is an incredibly powerful stone for teaching us how to take full responsibility for ourselves and our power. 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. This is an incredibly positive stone, which reminds us that we are the masters of our own fate and can at any time choose a new path.

Mental: Gold Calcite is a wonderful stone to encourage lifelong learning. It helps us see the value of learning for learning’s sake, and that all skills, whether profound or mundane, have a value worth celebrating. Golden Calcite encourages us to develop a multitude of skills and use these skills to increase our abundance and joy.

Physical: Gold Calcite is said to balance the endocrine system. It is most often used by metaphysical healers to control blood-sugar and to treat diseases associated with the Pancreas. It is also believed to be particularly good for healing both the physical and emotional wounds of abuse.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

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.

 

Ethically Sourced Gold Calcite

The Supply Chain

The Supply Chain is complicated but likely clean.

The Mine and Lapidary are in the same country. The Importer is in a different country.

At least two middle-men are involved.

 

 

The Mine

This Gold Calcite is a byproduct of an industrial limestone mine in China, most likely in Hunan.

The Lapidary & Importer

 

This Gold Calcite was tumbled in China.

Lapidary factories in China are typically safe for workers.

The Calcite was imported by a US mineral wholesaler that pays its employees fairly.

Sourcing Relationship

I first encountered the US wholesaler at the 2015 Franklin, North Carolina Gem and Mineral Show.  They carry a wide-variety of tumbled stones, both common and rare.  The tumbled Celestite and specialty Obsidian particularly caught my eye, since no other source carries them.  The owners are a married couple, he takes care of their larger stones, while she is the self-proclaimed, “Tumbled Stone Queen.” The Queen knows her stock inside and out and we’ve spoken in person and by phone about the geology and origins of various minerals.

The amount of middlemen involved gives me pause.  I only purchase stones from this source if I can’t find the stone elsewhere and I am confident about the mining and lapidary conditions for the countries in question.
