As a stone of inspiration, Blue Calcite stimulates one’s intuitive and psychic abilities. It is known as a peace promoting stone because it is one of the most soothing stones to the emotions. It protects against the bombardment of other people’s thoughts and emotions. It provides a “cocoon” of Blue Spiritual Light which helps one “float” gently out of the body, thus enhancing astral travel and deep dream states. It also aids one in taking charge of creating one’s own reality. Blue Calcite clears away any communication barriers or places where there is a lack of expression. In doing so, it helps one share knowledge with others and is great for those that have writer's block.

Blue Calcite is a calcium carbonate mineral. Calcite is the largest component of most of the limestone and marble deposits on Earth. Covering more than 40 % of its surface in the form of limestone, Calcite is the most widely distributed mineral on Earth. Calcite crystals are found on all of the planet’s continents. It is made during igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic processes. It is usually formed at the bottom of saltwater oceans and lakes. Here, liquid calcium, algae, corals and shells combine with mud and solidify into a mass rock over time. Then through metamorphic processes of additional heat and pressure calcite is made. While this is the most common way Calcite is made, it can be formed joining alongside Feldspar during igneous rock processes. In the human body, Calcium encourages the metabolism of cells and is vital for forming DNA (holder of genetic information) and RNA (the sender of information on proteins, hormones, and enzymes). It strengthens the heart and the rhythm of the heart and regulates the acid/alkaline states of the body. Also, calcium supports and strengthens bones. Calcite has acid-neutralizing abilities and is found in the pharmaceutical industry today. It is also used in construction materials, pigments, soil treatments, and more.
Calcite comes from the Greek word chalix, meaning lime. This is because Calcite is often found in Limestone. Native Americans viewed Calcite as a 'holy stone' sent down from the Gods. Blue Calcite is a relatively new discovery.
