Calcite is a carbonate mineral and is a soft stone, only a 3 on the Mohs Scale. It can be found in a range of colors including clear, white, yellow, blue, red, green, brown, and grey. Calcite, like most carbonates will dissolve if exposed to most types of acid. High grade optical calcite was used in WWII for gun sights for bomb sights and anti-aircraft weaponry!
These rough pieces of calcite have a nice yellow color with a hint of white, and can be used in beautiful home décor projects and crafting. Calcite, being such a soft mineral, can be polished on a set of arbours very easily. They range in size from 1cm to 5cm.
