History and Uses

Calcite gets its name from the Greek word chalix meaning lime. It comes in a wide variety of colours including, red, green, orange, yellow, blue, pink, clear, black and white.

It is one of the most common minerals on Earth, making up the basis of limestone and marble. It takes many different forms and is formed in many different geological environments. Some forms fluoresce blue or red under UV light. It has been used to make cement and mortar and very clear translucent calcite has been used to make gun sights and geological (polarising) microscopes.

Geological Description

Green calcite is a mineral belonging to the carbonate group and is primarily composed of calcium carbonate (CaCO3). It is characterized by its vibrant green colour, which is typically caused by the presence of trace amounts of various impurities and minor elements. Green calcite often exhibits a translucent to opaque appearance with a vitreous to pearly lustre.

In terms of its geological occurrence, green calcite can be found in a variety of environments. It is commonly formed in sedimentary rocks through the accumulation and consolidation of calcium carbonate-rich sediments. This process can occur in marine, lacustrine (lake), or even underground cave environments.

Calcite is known to be a mineral that can precipitate directly from water, particularly in regions with high concentrations of dissolved calcium and carbonate ions. It can also form as a result of chemical reactions between water and existing rock formations, such as limestone or dolomite. In these cases, the green colouration is often associated with the incorporation of elements like copper, nickel, chromium, or iron.

The formation of green calcite may also occur in hydrothermal systems where hot, mineral-rich fluids interact with existing rocks, creating veins and other mineral deposits. This process can result in the growth of green calcite crystals within fractures and cavities in the host rock.

Green calcite can be found in various locations around the world. It is particularly abundant in Mexico, where it is found in deposits throughout the country. The state of Veracruz is known for producing high-quality green calcite specimens.

Brazil is another significant producer of green calcite. The state of Minas Gerais is known for its diverse range of minerals, including green calcite.

Jewellery Care & 1 Year Warranty

In jewellery form, some crystals are more hardy than others. For everyday wearers, we recommend crystals that fall in the Quartz family or have a Moh's hardness level of over 5.5-6. Avoid excessive water exposure, especially in pools or the ocean and any harsh chemicals. Delicate crystals like Amber, Moonstone, Opal, and iron-based meteorites need gentle handling due to potential discolouration or structural risks. Store safely, and clean with care. Rest assured that our 1-year jewellery warranty covers any manufacturing defects. With proper care, we expect your pieces to last many years to come. In our 18 years of business, we still wear some treasures from our original collection! Learn more about our warranty and care guide here.
