Honey Calcite Tumbles

Question:

"Hello... I have a question about Honey Calcite. I have one {I think} and it fell out of my pocket onto cement. It broke into 3 pieces and when I picked it up it cut my finger, like glass and it has a glassy look to it. Does that sound like calcite to you? Thank you for your thoughts. Have a beautiful Wednesday :)"

 

Answer:

Hi there P,

Thanks for reaching out to us.

I've never personally had calcite broke on me so as to test this out for you but let's dig in a little bit.

Calcite has a hardness of 3 so that means it is quite soft, easily breakable. It's only a little more harder than Selenite (Satin Spar variety) which is a 2. Your fingernail cannot scratch calcite but it can scratch Selenite if you'd like to test that out.

It is conchoidal which refers to the fracture of minerals and rocks, and this means it has a smooth shell-shaped convex and concave surfaces, similar to how obsidian or glass may be when it breaks. Calcite has planes of weakness that allow a crystal, when broken, to split along those planes, leaving a smooth, polished-looking face. I did research this from a few sources as I'm not a geologist, but from this, I'd say that it can break and look a little like glass.

I think that any stone that has broken and fallen, it can definitely cut you, depending on how it breaks of course.

You can easily test it as well. Calcite will fizz with light acids like vinegar. It won't go crazy but you should see some fizzing if you drop it in vinegar.

I hope this helps :)
