Calcite is a Fire stone and is highly noted for its purifying, cleansing, rejuvenating and revitalizing nature – all befitting rebirthing. Calcites are superior for assisting us in breaking out of old molds and patterns, burning off what is no longer needed, and moving us courageously into new worlds. But, for as much as it is a courage-producing and invigorating stone, Calcite works with an unmistakable gentleness. Like the soft rains of Spring that nurture the soils which hold the plant seeds that will finally begin to emerge, Calcite brings its own gentle waves of renewal and hope. It is a most refreshing stone.
