Clear calcite works gently to help an individual see how they have manifested imbalances and difficulties in their life, and helps the individual to see clear choices for changing those factors and recreating their lives. Clear calcite works with the energies of forgiveness to help an individual forgive themselves and others for emotional pains of the past, especially deep-rooted ones that have been lingering unresolved for years. If you choose to work with only a few stones, consider clear calcite for your collection. Clear calcite looks like frozen water. It is very clear with transparency in many spots of each stone. It refracts, showing several views of an obect placed in front of it. Because of this it is especially useful for seeing into the spirit world. If you can’t afford a quartz crystal sphere, but are interested in divining with a crystal ball, consider a much more affordable clear calcite version. We have a large one in our collection that was purchased for a hundred dollars. the same size in clear quartz would easily have run over five hundred dollars.
