History & Origin:

Orange Calcite is a stunning apricot variety of the calcium carbonate mineral Calcite. While known for its vibrant, sunny hue, it can also be found in a deep red-orange colour - known more specifically as Orchid Calcite (see below.) Like Honey & Yellow Calcite, it also gets its colour from traces of Hematite within. Orange Calcite can commonly be found in Mexico, Canada, & South America, & may sometimes display beautiful banded patterns of oranges, creams & whites.

Metaphysical Properties:

Orange Calcite holds a cheerful & energising vibration. Conjuring up images of fresh oranges on a bright summers day, this stone inspires that same feeling of joy, positivity & wonder. Connected to the playful energy of childhood, this stone can help you get in touch with your inner child as well as heal any negative emotions still held onto from that time. This crystal can inspire creativity, fun, optimism & strengthen self-esteem & confidence. It can give you the motivation, enthusiasm & energy to start a new adventure or move closer towards your goals. Because of this, it is especially helpful for anyone feeling lethargic, down-heartened or directionless in life. It is also a great stone for children transitioning into adulthood, as well as the perfect companion for expecting parents, couples looking to start a family, or even simply anyone who has lost touch with their playful child-like qualities.

How to use:

Carry with you on adventures to invite joy, cheerfulness & positivity. Place over the Sacral Chakra to heal inner child. Place in your home to inspire motivation, action, energy & creativity.
