Incredibly RARE Elmwood Stellarbeam Calcite // Orange Calcite, Honey Calcite, Elmwood Mine, Tennessee USA, Cut Roadblocks, Manifestation N10
ABOUT ELMWOOD STELLAR BEAM CALCITE
These crystals have a magical story to tell! This glassy, honey colored calcite is only found in one location in Tennessee, USA, in a zinc mine now owned by a Belgian company called Nyrstar. In years past, the calcite (and other crystals, including a brilliant purple fluorite) was intentionally sourced, but the mine was then closed down in 2004 having been tapped out. It was reopened between 2008-2010 with zinc being the only focus. Reportedly, new legal and insurance restrictions forced the company to take strong measures against any miners pulling out calcite, fluorite, sphalerite, or barite. Because the calcite grows so closely with the zinc, they used to be allowed to carry out any specimens that fit in their lunch coolers. But now, if a miner is caught with crystal specimens, they incur a series of penalties, including working without pay, and, after several violations, could be fired, and any crystal specimens found are blasted in the mine or destroyed if confiscated. Elmwood crystals’ rarity and risk is why it’s so pricey.
Then, despite Nyrstar’s efforts to keep the crystals from getting out, they started popping up at gem shows around the U.S. So how did the miners get the new specimens out? No one knows for sure, but one story weaves tales of hidden underground tunnels, bribery of weekend shift supervisors, and stealth movement of lots of heavy rocks! I believe crystals turn up for humans at certain times in our evolution, and there are many implications behind the mining of this material. What is the calcite asking of us? What do we need to learn from it and the process with which it comes to us? I’m full of gratitude to have a few of these pieces available to you in the shop, and am pretty wowed just by being in their presence.
These gorgeous rare crystals hold the metaphysical properties of calcite, as well as their own, unique to this material, this location, and this story. Each individual piece varies in intensity of both color and energy, the way it transmutes negativity, and the way that it offers its properties. Many have self healing, some advanced so much that they are double terminated. Others have side car “baby” crystals, Twins and other unique etchings and formations. Each is truly individual, and only you know if it speaks to you!
These crystals are 100% NATURAL in color and formation. They are not enhanced or polished in any way.
You will receive the exact INCREDIBLY rare Elmwood honey Calcite pictured. It measures 6.25 by 4 inches wide.
Calcite, much like clear quartz, amplifies energies, both in other crystals and humans. This crystal is a mover and a shaker; it gets you motivated and helps you put your words/thoughts into action. It helps to shift stagnant or stuck energies, clearing them of negativity and readying the space (or person) for work. Calcite helps you bust through the roadblocks in your life, seeing beyond the errors of your ways in order to learn from the mistakes and apply the lessons to future situations. It encourages you to let go of those doubts that limit your action and your purpose, helping you find and manifest your path.
Optical Calcite helps to relieve stress, and lessen fears and anxieties - because, after all, when stuck energy is shifted and things start to move, positivity and happiness have space to move in. This is a wonderful stone for students, those in the arts and sciences, and for people wanting to make some changes in their lives, big or small.
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered. :)
