Calcite is a principal crystal extracted in commercial Limestone mines. It is mined in shallow pits at the primary deposit where the Calcite still has its original relationship with the host rock. After being extracted, Calcite is sorted into different grades depending on color. From a commercial viewpoint, the best variety is pure white, which can be pulverized into a powder and used to make rubber, paint, cement, textile goods, and especially ceramics.

All Calcite is natural, enhanced only by cutting and polishing.
