Orange Calcite

Everything you need to know about Orange Calcite.

IDENTIFICATION

Orange Calcite is a Calcium Carbonate mineral (CaCO3) in the Earth’s crust. It is found in many different geological environments, including sediments, chalk, and organically, in seashells (along with aragonite). Orange Calcite is of the Hexagonal crystal system, and it ranks three on Moh’s scale of hardness. 

Orange Calcite occurs in massive form, rhombohedral crystals, and the most abundant source is Mexico.

The colour of Orange Calcite can range from bright orange, semi-translucent to opaque, with occasional lighter orange banding.

 

 

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.

HISTORY

Calcite gets its name from the Greek word “calyx” meaning lime.  Microscopes. It is a mineral that has been extensively used ever since ancient times. Construction materials, abrasives, pigments, and agricultural soil treatments all contained calcite in one form or the other. As a constituent of marble, you can find calcite in many of the ancient world’s monuments.

Nowadays, calcite is more commonly associated with all four elements, and its uses and effects on our energy depend on its colour.
