This is a carved Pink Orange Calcite UNICORN totem. I haven't had any new Pink Orange Calcite pieces in a while, and was thrilled to get a handful this year. This is a naturally occurring Calcite that has a very interesting color that combines shades of both Pink and Orange. It picks up different tones depending on the lighting (natural vs. fluorescent), and background it is against (light vs. dark). ALL inclusions present come from 100% natural formations in the stone.
It weighs about 1.6oz and measures approx. 2 3/16" inches tall X 1 5/8" inches wide across the widest point. Code-011923-3693
As a totem animal, the Unicorn represents purity and innocence. It is said that the Unicorn gives us the ability to make our dreams come true, and helps to restore broken spirits on an emotional level. The Unicorn also has connections to the Spirits of the Forests, and the Fairy Folk.
Calcite of all kinds increases and amplifies energy, which is why it is used to assist in boosting the intuition, channeling and astral travel. It is thought to be a stone of creativity and spontaneity. All colors of calcite have been used to reduce stress and anxiety, and increase inner peace. It is a stone that one may chose when adjusting to abrupt change and imbalance in one’s life. It is a grounding energy and is thought to purify one's energy, and balance the Chakras.
In Crystal Healing, it is thought to reduce the time that one takes to heal, and is also used with ADD and ADHD, specifically to help one channel their excess or restless energy into creative endeavors. It is also used for back pain and to increase stamina and strength.
Pink Orange Calcite combines the metaphysical properties of both Pink and Orange Calcites.
Pink Calcite AKA Manganoan Calcite, Pink Mangano Calcite, or Pink Magnesium Calcite is thought to be a stone of love and to amplify the life force energies, including Reiki energy, as well as other healing energies.
Specimens can have varying shades of pink present – from quite pale, to bright. Depending on the amount of Manganese present in a specimen, it may fluoresce a brilliant deep pink/red when placed under a UV light.
Orange Calcite is often used in Shamanic work and used to give a gentle boost to psychic abilities and intuition. It is also used as an aid in balancing the mental and emotional and is used to relieve trauma, fear and depression. It is thought to be particularly helpful with phobias.
In Crystal Healing, Orange Calcite is thought to be helpful for chronic fatigue, reproductive problems, irritable bowel syndrome, and bone regeneration and growth. It is also helpful for balancing sexual energies.
It is associated with the second Chakra.
Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.
