Calcite is a carbonate mineral and the most stable polymorph of calcium carbonate. The Mohs scale of mineral hardness, based on scratch hardness comparison, defines value 3 as "calcite". How is calcite formed? Calcite can form by direct precipitation from waters rich in calcium. As concentrations increase or the amount of water decreases crystals of solid calcite crystals form. Calcite can also form in caves and where springs emerge on the surface Calcite metaphysically is believed to amplify thought, improve memory, and promote development.
Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in Earth's continental crust, behind feldspar, and is rated at a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. What is Quartz mainly utilized for? Since antiquity, varieties of quartz have been the most commonly utilized minerals in the making of jewelry and hardstone carvings, especially in Eurasia. Metaphysically, Quartz is thought to balance the aura, electromagnetic energy, and is associated with all chakras as a cleansing stone.
