RED CALCITE is a calcium carbonate mineral with a rhombohedral crystal system and a hardness of 3. It is found in Mexico, and its colour ranges from pale to vivid red.
Red Calcite is a stone of “soft vitality,” in that it energizes the base chakra and brings in additional prana, or life-force energy, yet it does so in a subtle way that is very easy to accept, and it brings no “jolts” or discomforts with it. These stones also link the base chakra with the crown, bridging the frequent gap between physical existence and spiritual life.
Red Calcite helps one appreciate the wonders of physical life and the ecstasies of sense-perception. It can dispel the half-sleep of “normal” consciousness and help restore the sense of wonder which full awareness brings. It allows one to learn to give complete attention to the senses whenever one desires to do so. This can engender shutting down the inner dialog of the brain and giving one the experience of wordless consciousness. Meditation outdoors with Red Calcite is recommended for facilitating this experience.
Red Calcite works well with Cuprite, Ruby and Red Garnet for enhancement of life-force energies. For grounding, Hematite, Smoky Quartz, Black Andradite Garnet and/or Black Tourmaline are recommended. Celestite can bring an uplifting feeling to Red Calcite’s energies. This stone also harmonizes with all other varieties of Calcite.
