The Many Colors of Calcite

The Many Colors of Calcite

There are over 800 forms of calcite crystals! It’s no wonder you can find calcite in many different colors ranging from transparent to opaque. The most common colors of calcite are orange and yellow. Here’s the scoop on what the different colors mean.


Clear calcite removes energetic blocks and cleanses all your chakras. This is a great stone to use in conjunction with Reiki treatments. It represents the ability to see things clearly and helps us understand the steps we need to take on our life journey.


White calcite contains calcium carbonate, so it’s a great stone for helping the body absorb and use calcium. It has also been known to dissolve pain and lower blood pressure. Energetically, white calcite can help you move forward in your life by acknowledging and letting go of the things that are holding you back.


Blue calcite is one of the harder colors to find. Because blue is the color associated with the throat chakra, blue calcite is great for helping you communicate more clearly with others. It can help you see what you want in your life and bring new ideas to fruition.


Because green calcite is associated with the heart chakra, it encourages forgiveness (of yourself and others) and compassion. Like clear calcite, it removes energy blocks. It heals your heart chakra and helps bring a renewed sense of purpose to encourage positive changes.


Yellow calcite is associated with hope, self-confidence, and motivation. Because yellow is the color of the solar plexus chakra, this is a great stone to work with when you want to remove self-doubt. Yellow calcite can help you feel empowered. You can also use yellow calcite to remove physical pain by placing it on the affected area.


Orange is the color of the sacral chakra, so it’s no surprise that orange calcite energizes the root and sacral chakras and helps improve creativity, sex drive, and physical energy. Calcite is very gentle compared to other crystals, so if you’ve tried working with Carnelian and the energy is too strong for you, orange calcite would be a great alternative.


We all know red is the color of blood, and so it is that red calcite helps improve this vital life force by detoxifying and energizing our bodies. It’s also great for inner strength and improving willpower.

Rainbow Calcite

Contrary to its name, rainbow calcite doesn’t include all the colors of the rainbow. It is also sometimes called Aztec or Inca calcite and is mostly white with black, orange, and red bands. Rainbow calcite will help you be more present in your life, letting go of your past to welcome your future.

Whether you are working on letting go of things that are holding you back or reducing physical pain, calcite is the perfect stone. Any color calcite makes a great starter crystal because calcite is so gentle. If you have questions about working with calcite, let us know in the comments.
