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. This piece is from Brazil.

Stone´s uniqueness: 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.

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: The product is packed in firm plastic bags.
