Reviews

Over its long history, calcite has been instrumental in shaping the worlds of microscopy, technology, physics and even the science of war.

To collectors, the word calcite invokes thoughts of shape and for good reason: calcite is found in more habits than any other mineral. It has fascinated crystallographers for generations.

Pure calcite is colorless, but even trace impurities can bring intense color to its many forms. The correct cut can transform common calcite into a stunning gemstone.
