Calcite is a calcium carbonate mineral, often found as a secondary crystal inside geodes that are formed on top of quartz. Calcite crystals are sometimes found in the earth independently. Coloration ranges from natural white to a deep orange hue and a host of various colors, depending on the trace minerals the calcite encounters. The crystal structure of calcite is hexagonal but terminates in many ways. It may sometimes be confused with quartz, though, calcite has a more viscous texture. Calcite is beneficial for study, motivation, laziness, revelation, emotional stress, calcium uptake in bones, dissolving calcification and much more as it connects emotion with intellect.
