Everything you need to know about Honey Calcite.
Honey Calcite is a Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) mineral that occurs in masses and rhombohedral forms. Honey Calcite ranks 3 on the Moh’s scale of hardness.
It is among the most common minerals found on earth because it takes various forms and occurs in different geological environments. The best specimens of this type of Calcite come from Mexico.
The lush tones of Honey Calcite are quite attractive. Also known as Golden Calcite and Amber Calcite, this crystal usually reflects a pale brown hue. However, the colour intensity is likely to differ from one piece to another, which could range from pale gold to golden to brown. Still, all honey calcite stones boast a semi-transparent or transparent finish that glows in the light.
The main difference between real and fake Honey Calcite is the real calcite double refraction phenomenon; its rhombohedral crystal form and perfect cleavage in three directions. Real calcite will react with weak acid, while other mineral fakes will stay inert. Also, real calcite glows under UV light.

In Norse legends, reference is made to a “sunstone” that the early Viking mariners used to locate the sun’s position on overcast days. This was more than likely the form of Calcite known as Icelandic Calcite, which has a polarizing effect on sunlight.
