Orange Calcite, also known as Calcspar, is an orange crystal for the Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras. It is found in Mexico and other parts of South America. Orange Calcite brings the energy of emotional balance, creativity, self-expression, self-empowerment, and enhances your libido. It is an excellent mood stabilizer!

Orange Calcite is found in sedimentary, metamorphic, and indigenous rocks. Its Mohs is 3, making it a soft stone yet perfect for emotional and spiritual cleansing, harmonization, and healing.

Orange Calcite metaphysical properties are unique because this crystal has two completely different ruling star signs, Cancer and Leo. This brings a blend of different energies and healing benefits to work with. 

Cancer is a nurturing and sensitive Water sign, while Leo is an expressive and creative Fire sign.

How To Cleanse Orange Calcite?

  • Smudging – With such a low Mohs value, water cleansing is not advised, so smudging is the next best option, especially as the Orange Calcite healing properties come alive with the fire element! Smudge with sage or other herbs. 
  • Crystal Geode – Leave your Orange Calcite on a larger Amethyst or Clear Quartz geode. Crystal geodes amplify the Orange Calcite benefits while purifying it of psychic pollution. 
  • Sunlight – Orange Calcite loves a sun bath but doesn’t leave it out in the solar rays too long. Orange Calcite is sensitive and can become brittle or fade if left outside for too long. 1 to 3 hours in direct sunlight provides the best effects.

Questions and Answers

Can I take a shower with Orange Calcite?

Yes you can take a shower with Orange Calcite, but it’s better to take short showers. 

Orange Calcite is not suited for cleansing in water for long periods of time. A quick bath or shower, however, will not harm the crystal when done sporadically.

Can I drink Orange Calcite water?

No, you shouldn’t drink Orange Calcite gem water or crystal elixir. Some crystals are perfect for making crystal-healing water for drinking, but Orange Calcite is not one of them.

Why can’t I use Orange Calcite with harder stones?

Crystals with a low Mohs value do not work well with high Mohs stones, as a general rule. There are some exceptions.

Are there any contraindications or precautions I should know?

Soaking in water is not advised, so smudging is your next best alternative. Smudging is not good for people with asthma allergies or who are pregnant, however, so this technique should be used sparingly.

Why does Orange Calcite have contradictory aspects?

Orange Calcite relates to both the Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras, with the ruling planets of both the Moon and Sun. This is because crystals sometimes “cross over” in Crystal therapy, meaning they can symbolize more than one chakra with a totally different set of qualities.

What does it mean if I lost my Orange Calcite crystal?

Sometimes a crystal leaves us when it has out-served its purpose. On a metaphysical and spiritual level, we no longer need the specific gemstone’s healing properties, so it will disappear from our lives.

I have mastered my meditation practice; now what?

You can start to combine sound therapy, such as binaural beats, nature sounds, or the sound of the universe chanting, OM, into your meditation sessions. You can also alternate between Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras healing with Orange Calcite.

Are the variations/types of Orange Calcite crystals’ meanings accurate?

Yes, they are accurate. Colors can merge and flow, so each meaning can be applied to the holistic (one-size-fits-all) Orange Calcite description in varying degrees. All of the healing properties apply to all types in lesser or more frequency.
