There is a special place in my Soul for all colors of the Calcite family. The base properties of the stone are so cleansing, and each color has it’s own unique cleansing focus. There are actually three Heart Chakra Calcite stones, each with their own heart-based healing. See also Pink Calcite and Mangano Calcite. Green Calcite works to clear from our Heart what is no longer serving us and help us look at love with new optimism. Find out the Green Calcite spiritual properties and how you can benefit from their supportive and healing blessings!
Science of Green Calcite
Calcite is one of the most common minerals on this Earth. Given its ability to cleanse and purify, I consider that a good thing for the population of the Earth. Calcite is often used as an acid neutralizer and high quality calcite is also used in antacid medications. This crystal is also fairly soft and delicate, so should be handled with care.
Historical Significance of Green Calcite
The name is derived from the Latin word for ‘lime’ – calx. Limestone is made up primarily of Calcite.
Metaphysical Attributes of Green Calcite
All Calcite is a powerful cleanser and amplifier of energy. Just having Calcite in a room will clear it of all negative energies. If you are moving into a new home or office, place some Calcite around the entire space to give it a thorough energetic cleansing before moving in. It invigorates stagnant energy within the body. It acts as an amplifier of all energies, so it is especially helpful when using Reiki or any other energy-based healing practice. Calcite also holds warmth and energy, so can be charged with energy and intention for future spiritual practices.
Green Calcite works to clear from our Heart what is no longer serving us and help us look at love with new optimism. This crystal dissolves bitterness, grudges, and heart sickness from our past. It enables us to leave past relationships in the past. This is not denying us the opportunity to process and learn from past issues, but allows us to let go of emotions and hard feelings that are way past their usefulness. Green Calcite helps us clear baggage from past relationships so we can move on to healthier and more fulfilling ones.
Green Calcite is a powerful mental and energetic healer. Green Calcite spiritual properties eliminate attachment to out-dated, rigid beliefs that no longer support you. It supports you as you let go of the familiar and adopt healthier habits and thought patterns. Sometimes we react a certain way because we always have and it may leave us feeling stuck in life. If you feel you are at a standstill in a career, a relationship, friendship, hobby, or project, then sit with Green Calcite to remove any blocks or impediments that have stalled your progress and enthusiasm.

Green Calcite Mantra Practice
Sit in a seated meditation position, holding the Green Calcite in your less dominant hand to receive its energy. Really feel the support of the cushion or floor beneath you. You are grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies. Imagine a soft green plant blooming at your Heart Center. It emits a soft green light that surrounds you with life renewing energy. Repeat this mantra, “I am Relaxed. I am Loved. I am ready to Let Go of anything in Life that is no Longer Supporting me.”
