Pink Mangano Calcite
Pink Calcite

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.  

What is the difference between Pink and Mangano Calcite?
After years and years of debate a new classification was formed.  For the stone to be considered Mangano Calcite, it must have at least 30% Manganese inclusions within the crystal structure. Energetically the stones are very similar. The slight difference being a softer, more loving energy towards the heart that comes from the more pure Pink Calcite crystals.

Pink calcite:  The pink color is caused by tiny inclusions of Manganese, which can range from a light white-pink, to an extremely bold almost violet. Under UV light it emits a radiant pink and is highly sought after due to its fluorescent capabilities.

Pink Calcite focuses on the heart much like rose quartz while Mangano covers the whole body due to the manganese inclusions.

Both are stones of forgiveness helping to release the fear and grief that keep the heart trapped in the past.  These stones are both helpful for anyone who has suffered trauma or assault.

Robert Simmons, The Book of Stones, states that Pink and Mangano Calcite are stones of empathy.  Helping to dispel arguments and stubbornness in oneself and others.  These are an excellent stones for use in conflicts between parents and children. 

Mangano Calcite encourages the optimal function of the physical heart while clearing the emotional body. It's ideal for infants and elderly who are experiencing difficulty with their hearts. 

They can help to gently release buried grief and anger. 

These stones are perfect for areas such as therapists 'offices, doctors offices', or healing rooms and clinics. Any place that healing is occurring or is the focus.

Mangano calcite is helpful after surgery and trauma. It is also a wonderful aid for assisting in clearing blocks and emotional expressions of the heart. 

Pink Calcite is a stone of deep compassion and allows that compassion to express itself in the person who is using it. 

Naisha Ahsian states that the more clear pink calcite are less potent on the physical level than it's less clear cousins such as Mangano. It is however, much more stimulating to the emotional energies. They stimulate the heart and the solar plexus, allowing someone to take action on their heart's truth.
