Science of Blue 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 Blue Calcite
The name is derived from the Latin word for ‘lime’ – calx. Limestone is made up primarily of Calcite.
Metaphysical Attributes of Blue 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.
Blue Calcite is one of the most soothing, comforting stones there is. It protects those who are empathic from taking on the entire energy of a room. This crystal creates a shield of cleansing light around your aura to prevent you from taking in too much of others’ emotional projections. Wear or carry Blue Calcite if you know you will be in a crowded location with high emotions. This gemstone is a very deep comfort stone if you are going through a difficult time in life. It helps to calm and sooth the nerves, and enables you to see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you feel like you are going through a “dark night of the soul” then Blue Calcite will help you through.
This gemstone is also extremely useful for out of body experiences as it allows you to release the body for astral travel. This can be difficult for those who are attached to their bodies and Earthly existence. This benefit is therefore also useful during end-of-life and hospice experiences as it helps people release attachment to the body and prepare for moving beyond the body.
