Where Does Caribbean Calcite Come From?
Pakistan is the only place in the world where Caribbean Calcite is mined.
This new stone was only discovered in the last few years, and took the crystal world by storm in 2019.
Although named after the Caribbean, this type of Calcite is not sourced from this region of the world: instead, the name refers to the stone's similar appearance to the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean sea.
Caribbean Calcite Crystal Healing Powers
As this stone is very new to the crystal world, little is definitively known about its crystal healing powers, however some powerful metaphysical properties have been reported.
The stone is said to have a deeply soothing, calming energy which gifts peace to its user.
For this reason, Caribbean Calcite may be able to help with sleep disturbances and nightmares.
All Calcites are said to amplify and cleanse energies, while Brown Aragonite (which is included in Caribbean Calcite) is great for grounding and stress relief.
Caribbean Calcite Chakras
This blue stone is most associated with the Third eye Chakra and the Crown Chakra.
With regards to spirituality, it is said to enhance one's psychic abilities and enable lucid dreaming and astral travel.
How Hard Is Caribbean Calcite?
Measuring 3 on the Mohs scale, this mineral is very soft and fragile.
Great care should still be taken not to damage the crystal surface by handling the stone gently and keeping it away from other stones.
To clean the delicate crystal, simply use water and dry it afterwards with a soft cloth.
