Properties: Calcite supports and increases development on both a physical and spiritual level. It fizzes away that which is not wanted, and helps to clear on every level, thereby improving clarity of thought and purpose, and detoxifying the body. It also opens and strengthens the chakras, and encourages stability and self-trust, while helping us to transform our ideas into actions. Clear optical calcite has a double refraction, or in other words, it creates two images when an object or text is viewed through it. For this reason, it is believed to amplify energy and intensify the power of magic and ritual work, and also to facilitate “clear vision”, which can be literal, mental, or psychic. In addition, it can aid multidimensional practice and meditation, allowing discernment between the dimensions. Physically, calcite is an aid to healing and strengthening of bones and teeth, as well as strengthening cell walls, and may also be helpful in supporting clotting of the blood.
