Pink Optical Calcite
Pink optical calcite, also known as pink mangano calcite, is a captivating variety of calcite distinguished by its soft pink hues. This beautiful crystal typically occurs in sedimentary rock formations and is often found in regions where manganese deposits are also present. A unique optical quality known as "double refraction" is best seen when optical calcite is polished or carved/cut into certain shapes. This optical effect causes objects viewed through it to be doubled, adding to its allure and aesthetic appeal. Enchanted Crystal has sourced this pink optical calcite directly from conflict free and fair wage mines in Madagascar.
Metaphysically, pink optical calcite is prized for its gentle and loving energy. The addition of redish/pink manganese associates it with the heart chakra. It is believed to help release emotional wounds and promote harmony in relationships. Additionally, its soothing energy is said to reduce stress and anxiety, making it a popular choice for those seeking emotional balance and inner peace.
