Red Calcite Meaning
VITALITY | MOTIVATION | DETOXIFYING
Red Calcite is a vital stone that increases energy and your willingness to experience life.
Think of it as the Red Bull of the crystal world. A Red Calcite crystal will give you the wings to achieve, while its grounding properties protect your energetic and emotional boundaries, alleviating “spaciness” (aka that feeling you get when you sink four Red Bulls and a couple of No Doz and think it’s a f**king great idea to party all night when you have a job interview at 7am).
Red Calcite is also an excellent stone for women, as it is believed to assist with balancing hormones and absorbing minerals. This appropriately blood red stone is a pill busting No Doz/Multivite combo without the side effects.
