Calcite is a very delicate stone and one of the most common minerals on earth. Its numerous inclusions and admixtures influence calcite’s colour design. Transparent white calcites are noted for their striking double refraction, which occurs thanks to the single crystals. It is a very fragile and fissile stone, which requires individual, manual processing and faceting. These pieces come from China.

Special conditions/ treatment: Calcite is a carbonate, so, please do not wash it in salt solutions or other chemicals as it may damage and lose its lustre.

About the product: Stone has been smoothed out into a round flat shape. We sell smooth stones in 1 kg package; however some of them are available also in 0,5 and 0,25 kg variant.
