optical calcite

As the name suggests, Calcite (calcium), is associated historically with bones, though commonly know as the stone to stimulate the mind through its unique optical qualities. Whether polished or raw, optical calcite has a unique double refraction characteristic; meaning that either in combination with other polished stones, or alone for a double visual treat, the expanded refractive qualities allows for a more ‘open’ view of one’s world.
