How to Care for Caribbean Calcite
Calcite is a relatively soft stone and requires some special care. It has a hardness level of 3 on the Mohs hardness scale, making it prone to cracking and breakage.
Calcite is sensitive to temperature changes. It should be stored in a place without large temperature changes. It’s best to keep Caribbean Calcite in a safe indoor space, like a bedside table or bookshelf.
Caribbean Calcite may be a stone of the water element, but it should not be submerged in water.
This is especially true if your calcite has cracks or pits, which is quite common for Caribbean Calcite. Water can work its way into these openings and slowly cause the stone to weaken from the inside out. This can eventually lead to breakage.
Other Clean & Care Tips
Wet a cloth and wring it out. Wipe your stone lightly to clean it and dry immediately with a soft, dry towel.
Avoid leaving it in water for extended periods of time.
Avoid salt water, as it can cause fissures in the crystal and erode it even quicker than fresh water.
Store your Caribbean Calcite in a dry area away from direct sunlight. Overexposure to sunlight or UV light can cause the color to fade and cracks.
