The colour of Blue Calcite can vary from a pale light blue to a brighter blue or blue with grey shades. The stone's principal component is calcium carbonate, with other minerals with powerful healing and metaphysical properties.
The calcite is readily identified by its rhombohedral cleavages. The non-90° angles between the cleavage planes will tell you that it's real calcite. Looks can be deceiving, and many minerals look similar to calcite, and it also comes in so many aesthetics.
The main difference between real and fake calcite is that the real one occurs in the rhombohedral form of crystal, has double refraction, and reacts with hydrochloric acid with the formation of gas bubbles. Fake calcites are usually more complex than real ones and cannot be scratched by a knife.

The wonderful family we purchase from have also set up a network of guys in the Lapidary business to cut and polish our polished pieces. Madagascar's landscape can be complex for the geologists; before carrying out the mining process, the entire area is scouted and thoroughly researched for other local materials, habitats and trenches.
