These crystals are mined from the USA, I get them from a miner dirty and wash them myself. He uses heavy equipment to access the crystals deeper in the ground. That makes these crystals older and higher energy than those that are formed closer to the surface.
It also makes for more unusual formations and bigger crystals. Truly beautiful and I hope I get to continue to get crystals from this totally awesome source.
I'm lucky to have found a new source in Arkansas, Jim Coleman. A lot of skeletal calcite and quartz. I'm not an expert but it looks like some long ago ocean, Dog-tooth calcite formed after some force killed the aquatic sea life such as Venus Clams. And the clusters look as
if they were formed by a great force. I bet Jim Coleman has some beautiful specimens of Dog-tooth calcite formed inside Venus Clams. look like pink flowers from what I have seen. I find a few whole single "petals". I have never found a whole spray of Calcite, I have only seen these in pictures hope to find one someday.
03/26/2011 From the Jim Coleman mines this year I have Amethyst. clusters for sale. These will be located in the Category "Other Minerals".Very beautiful.

Calcite takes on different colours when other minerals blend with it as it forms, making it extremely useful for placing on the respective chakras. When this is done it clears and activates not only the chakras on which it is placed but also does the same for the remaining chakras. Golden calcite is second to none when it comes to energizing the crown chakra.
Calcite is an effective energy amplifier, releasing electrical impulses and increasing energy in its environment, whether that is on a body or in a room.
"Calcite is a world teacher for all humanity, facilitating macrocosmic awareness and appreciation of the creative forces of nature. It is an excellent stone when studying the arts and sciences....

Once thought to be a plant, coral has been called the "garden of the sea". The ancient Egyptians placed pieces of coral in tombs as a protection against evil spirits because they believed that each piece truly contained a drop of divine blood.
According to Greek mythology, when Perseus chopped off the head of the Gorgon Medusa, some drops of blood splashed into the sea, and thereby solidified into coral.
Records dating back thousands of years confirm that coral was used in decorative art objects as well as jewelry.
Ancient legends tell us that people once believed that Mars was composed of red coral due to it's striations and colorings.
Coral symbolizes joy and happiness, it enables the wearer to enjoy life.
Hematite The root "hem/o" means "blood". When ground or cut, this blackish grey metallic stone forms a reddish powder. Hematite forms a reflective shield around the wearer, letting negativity bounce off and return to the sender. The bearer should remember however, that their own negativity will be reflected to them if they are its source. It is therefore a "lesson stone," teaching the aware to release and ground their negativity. It heals and cleanses the blood and improves memory.
