OPTICAL CALCITE has the property of double refraction.
Double refraction, also called birefringence, an optical property in which a single ray of unpolarized light entering an anisotropic medium is split into two rays, each traveling in a different direction.
One ray (called the extraordinary ray) is bent, or refracted, at an angle as it travels through the medium; the other ray (called the ordinary ray) passes through the medium unchanged.
Anisotropic: exhibiting properties with different values when measured in different directions, in this case, an anisotropic crystal.
There is a lot more to this, but for now, let’s get to the meta-properties that Calcite offers…
The optical calcite….
1. Can be used to remind us of the double meaning of words during a conversation
2. Use when cleansing and clearing the outer bodies
3. Brings a higher degree of clarity to all situations
4. Resonates with the sign of Aquarius
The general properties of Calcite also apply!
Calcite releases electrical impulses when paced under pressure.
It is an energy amplifier.
It is said to help the mind and body remember…the mind, to remember information brought forth during conversations, astral travel, and channeling; the body, to remember the state of perfection during both the conditions and experiences of illness in order to retain a natural state of perfection.
It is useful in multi-directional energy distribution in that the energy that is directed inward toward the central forces of the calcite actually separates and returns at double the intensity.
Be careful what energy you send into it!
It brings forth a polarizing, prismatic energy which develops an energy spectrum of sorts, that clears and activates all of the chakras.
Calcite is a word teacher for Humanity, facilitating macro-cosmic awareness and appreciation of the creative forces of Nature.
It is an excellent stone for anyone studying or interested in Arts & Sciences.
Furthermore, the different colors of calcite can be placed upon the body to induce and amplify our energy field.
Using the appropriate chakra colors on the body’s chakras not only cleansing, clears, and activates the chakra, but also provides a sweeping action that works to clear all remaining chakras!
Both clear and Golden Calcite are perfect for the crown chakra. The clear Calcite works on all chakras, hence this stone.
Calcite vibrates to the number 8.
Astrologically corresponds to the sign of Cancer.
Iceland spar, formerly known as Iceland crystal (Icelandic: silfurberg; lit. silver-rock), is a transparent variety of calcite, or crystallized calcium carbonate, originally brought from Iceland, and used in demonstrating the polarization of light (see polarimetry).
There are many regions where optical calcite is found, but the Vikings found their in Iceland.
It occurs in large readily cleavable crystals, easily divisible into rhombs, and is remarkable for its birefringence.
As described earlier, this means that the index of refraction of the crystal is different for light of different polarization.
A ray of unpolarized light passing through the crystal divides into two rays of perpendicular polarization directed at different angles, called double refraction.
Historically, the double-refraction property of this crystal was important to understanding the nature of light as a wave.
This crystal was mined in Brazil, although there are many places optical calcite is found.

What are Ubique Botanical Perfumes?
Welcome to Pure Perfume
Ubique is Latin for "everywhere", and refers to Omnipresence, the property of being present everywhere.
u-bi-que [oo-bee-kwe; English] adverb, Latin, "Everywhere".
Ubique Botanical Perfumes contain concentrated botanicals. Plant, flower, wood oils, absolutes, tinctures, and concretes are used and may cause an allergic reaction if you have an allergy to these substances. It is always best to begin your fragrant Ubique journey with a sample before purchasing a larger size, but don't wait too long...these are limited creations and they sell out quickly!
• We do not accept returns on perfumes, personal care items, or sale items. Please purchase and try sample sizes before purchasing larger sizes. Thank you!

Mine Rough Stones and Crystals
Mine rough stones are those we procure directly from a mine instead of a mass dealer. These stones are fresh from the earth and have not been previously sold. We prefer mine rough stones as the vibrational qualities are HIGH.
ALL STONES AND CRYSTALS ARE MINED.
One should not expect perfection when purchasing from ANY dealer unless the stone has been cut and polished and is listed as "perfect".
If perfection is desired, please only purchase cut and polished "perfect" stones.
Mine rough stones may have dents, dings, etc. We photograph each stone and describe what we see. We do not sell that which is not of high vibrational quality and authentic.
