Extremely clear Rhomboid Calcite–love the clarity in crystals. This one is larger than the two other ones I have in my collection, and by far, is the most clear. It is very nice. 2.5″L x 3.5″w x 1.25″ thick. Approximately 1.5lbs.
The cool thing about rhomboid calcites are their double refraction capability: that means if you put it over the type on a page or a flat object, you will see 2 images of whatever you are viewing, one image slightly off from the other (a couple pictures do show that). That’s the nature of the growth planes within the calcite.
And the fact that this type of crystal forms in the shape of perfect rhomboids (think Geometry) is pretty cool too. Calcite is a soft energy, whether it is this particular crystal or the many more colorful ones which each have their own useful purposes; but it is also a cleansing type of energy–like a purifier of sorts. So many people use rhomboid calcites as room cleansers and negativity dispellers. I use them in that manner in my home.
