Calcite Azul (or Blue Calcite)

What is Calcite Azul?

Calcite Azul, also known as “Blue Calcite” or “Sky Blue Calcite,” is a mesmerizing crystal that captivates with its calming energy and vivid blue hue. This stunning stone displays a range of shades from pale blue to deep azure, often accented with striking white streaks or inclusions. The material can be either translucent or semi-translucent, adding to its visual allure. Calcite Azul belongs to the calcite mineral group, featuring a trigonal crystal system and a relatively high level of hardness, which makes it suitable for various decorative and functional applications.

This remarkable stone is primarily mined in Brazil, although it can be found in various locations around the world. Calcite Azul (or Blue Calcite) forms through the sedimentation and crystallization of calcium carbonate-rich solutions in limestone or marble deposits. The geological process involved in its formation results in its unique and captivating appearance, making it highly sought after for both aesthetic and practical purposes.
