Calcite is a rock-forming mineral with a chemical formula of CaCO3. It is extremely common and found throughout the world in sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks.

The properties of calcite make it one of the most widely used minerals. It is used as a construction material, abrasive, agricultural soil treatment, construction aggregate, pigment, pharmaceutical and more. It has more uses than almost any other mineral.

Calcite, which comes in dozens of colors, is a form of calcium carbonate, which is the mineral that makes up chalk.

While its name comes from the German word calcite (meaning limestone) and only came into use relatively recently, in the ancient world, calcite was grouped together with gypsum and called “alabaster” for its fair, milky color.

The calcite is clear, whitish, or pale grey, and when calcite takes on different colors (due to microscopic quantities of other minerals or metals contained within the crystal matrix) its energy shifts, and it takes on unique characteristics.

Calcite is a powerful amplifier and cleanser of energy. According to Judy Hall, author of The Crystal Bible, simply having calcite in the room cleans negative energies from the environment and heightens your energy.  

 Green Calcite is a powerful energy amplifier and cleanser.

Green Calcite possesses the capacity to nurture the mind, dissolving rigid convictions and outdated patterns while reinstating equilibrium to the mind. It facilitates the release of that which is familiar and comforting yet no longer beneficial, fostering communication and facilitating the shift from stagnation to a more favorable circumstance.

Green Calcite is said to be helpful to children to hold their own debates.

According to Robert Simmons, green calcite's energy is refreshing to the etheric body in the same way that a plunge into a swimming hole can be for the physical body. On page 112 in his book The Book of Stones, The Book of Stones, it is cooling to the "hot" emotions such as anger and irritability.

Green Calcite is said to improve the quality of meditations, helping to still the incessant voice of the thinking mind. Sleeping with Green Calcite can make dreams more pleasant, while carrying it can help make one feel clear and relaxed amid the stresses of daily life. 

Green Calcites frequency stimulates the heart chakra and the healing ability of the physical body. This frequency feels like a sense of freshness and vitality to the body and it's energy counterpart. 
Adding this stone to a room can bring "spring like freshness" energy into the room aiding those who suffer from seasonal affective disorders or depression in the winter season. 

Working in the heart chakra, this energy frequency can assist in removing past patterns around relationships and emotional attachment. It brings a new softness to the heart fostering forgiveness and the release of grudges or resentments. 

Carrying it will help with new habits by reminding you of those new tasks each time you become of aware of it on your person.
