In her other masterpiece Crystalline Transmission, Katrina Raphaell writes lucidly about this precious stone. “In many ways Calcite is like a new born star-child who is just getting acclimated to the earth and must be treated with attuned and sensitive care or it is liable to fall apart. But, when properly looked after and aligned with, many wonders can be revealed.” Katrina writes further “The natural softness of Calcite and vulnerability to cleave is another symbolic lesson. This in and of itself demonstrates how unattached Calcite is to any one physical form. It is almost as if it knows that no matter what happens to it or how small it gets, it loses nothing because its primal integrity of spiritual force is maintained. Calcite clearly represents the reality of a whole existing within a whole and the multi-dimensional perfection of the universe”.
