Why orange? The vibrant orange cathodoluminescence seen in this unique form of Calcite is due to the presence of Manganese cations that cause a radioactive transition when Calcium ions are substituted in distorted octahedral sites of the stone’s structure. Orange Calcite is known for its implications of enhanced recollection and recovery of information rich memories formed during conversation and during astral travel. It is also noted that Calcite utilizes the third-eye to absorb and process past traumas that the recipient may have suffered. It is an excellent stone to glean inspiration from when studying the arts and sciences as it works to facilitate macrocosmic awareness and bring creative insight to fruition.
