Lemurian Blue Calcite

Not all crystals are what they appear to be. Today’s crystal topic is a bit of a cautionary tale. There are people in the industry who, for whatever reason, rename a crystal then trademark it. Hype is created about its high vibrational qualities, and market them as the one crystal you absolutely must have. While I agree there are must have crystals; not every crystal is a thing. I was gifted todays crystal, and was told it is called Lemurian Blue Calcite.

I was happy to be given this beautiful crystal, I’d just never heard of it. So, I set about researching to find out what I could. While looking at the stone I noticed bubbles on the surface. I realized it had been laqured rather than tumbled. I found in one source that Lemurian Blue Calcite is sometimes laqured to prevent the layers from coming apart. I also discovered people have very polarized opinions as to the type of crystal it is. I spoke to a couple different people. One person insists it is a thing. Another says it is not a form of calcite, and that it is an Agate. For a time I too thought it might be an agate because of it’s colored bands, but it is too soft to be a member of the quartz group.

Finding information was not easy, especially when I discovered that Lemurian Blue Calcite also goes by several other names. Blue Argentinian Calcite, Blue Aquataine Calcite, Argentinian Aquamarine Calcite, and Argentinian Blue Onyx. That makes one wonder what it actually is!!

What exactly is it? It’s Banded Calcite! A couple of weeks ago I posted an article about banded calcite. You can read this article here if you missed it. Lemurian Blue Calcite is, to the best of my knowledge, only found in Argentina; although a different source mentions new Zealand as well. This type of calcite was trademarked in 2009 by Robert Simmons of Heavan and Earth LLC.

I am not entirely sure how I feel about trademarked crystals. To take a crystal, rename it and sell it as something else makes me feel it isn’t so much about the benificial healing qualities as much as it is the money being made. On the other side of this delima is Super Seven, a type of Amethyst also trademarked by Robert Simons. This crystal is a combination of seven crystals and minerals, Because of this giving it a special name is understandable.

Being a member of the calcite family the Mohs scale for this crystal is 3. The beautiful blue-green color combined with the layered bands helps it resonate with the Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown Chakras. some sources say it also works with the higher transpersonal chakras as well.

Now onto the qualities Lemurian blue Calcite has to offer:

  • Said to accelerate the ascension process.
  • Strengthen psychic ability.
  • Help to connect you to Ancient Lemurian knowledge.
  • Helps ease anxiety, stress and fear.
  • Assists with past life recall.
  • Helps you be compassionate toward others but not be consumed by their emotion.
  • Helps you connect to higher, angelic realms.
  • Assists lucid dreaming.

I hope you found the introduction of Lemurian Blue Calcite interesting. If it seems like a crystal you would like to work with, I encourage you to acquire a piece and give it a try. I am sure you will love it as much as I do. Remember that crystals and minerals were given to the Earth to enhance our lives. I am in no way suggesting anyone leave allopathic medicine. Rather the purpose of these weekly articles is to offer alternative options to enhance your lives and wellbeing.

Blessed Be ❤ Sharon
