What does Green Calcite look like?

Green Calcite is calcium carbonate and forms through sedimentation. This stone has a shiny or glossy appearance and will range from translucent to opaque. Typically the colors of the stone will be pale deep to seafoam green, yellow-green and white. The texture of green-calcite will be smooth and slippery and may have a chalky look and feel where fractures have occurred. Inclusions and fractures are very common for this soft stone. It rates a 3 on the Mohs hardness scale. 

Green Calcite gets its green color from chlorite that got trapped during the crystallization process. These stones are found all over the world in metamorphic, sedimentary, and igneous rocks and make up a large portion of the earth’s crust.
