The calcite mineral has been used by ancient people. For instance, the ancient Egyptians carved most items out of calcite, relating it to the goddess Bast, whose name mainly contributed to the term “alabaster”. Other ancient cultures also used this stone for similar carved items and applications. Considered as a Holy Stone for the Land of their Father, the Native Americans considered this crystal as a gift bestowed upon them by the Gods. Blue Calcite is good for the throat, lowering of blood pressure, restoration, and communication enhancement.
