    The Mojo: Clear Optical Calcite/Iceland Spar

    Iceland spar is somewhat unique among the calcites. It contains no impurities, so it is nearly colorless and transparent to both visible and ultraviolet light. For centuries, Reydarfjördur fjord in eastern Iceland was the only source of this pure calcite; hence most of the world called it Iceland spar (spar means a crystal with smooth surfaces). The Icelanders just called it "silfurberg," meaning silver rock. The polarizing effect of Iceland spar can accurately locate the sun even through dense clouds or mist.

    A crystal of Iceland spar has two unusual properties. First, it is a natural polarizing filter. Second, because of its inherent polarization, Iceland spar is birefringent, meaning light rays entering the crystal become polarized, split, and take two paths to exit the crystal – creating a double image of an object as seen through the Iceland Spar piece.

    There is good evidence that the Vikings used the polarizing effect of Iceland spar to navigate the North Atlantic. The constant fog and mist in the North Atlantic often make navigation by stars or sun impossible. The Vikings called Iceland spar a ‘sunstone’ because the polarizing effect can be used to find the direction of the sun even in dense fog and overcast conditions. It can also see the course of the sun when the sun is actually below the horizon, as happens when you are sailing above the Arctic circle.

    Double Refraction

    Optical phenomenon exhibited on certain minerals where a light ray enters the crystal and splits up into two separate beams. The double refraction of most minerals generally cannot be seen without specialized instruments. However, in some minerals, such as the Iceland Spar variety of Calcite, it is emphatically displayed. The double refraction is different in every mineral and can be used to identify gemstones.

    From a metaphysical point, Clear Optical Calcite/Iceland Spar is an energizing crystal tool which helps in attracting and connecting with people in friendship and business. Calcite stimulates mental activity and grounds one into the physical body. It helps one to re-think and define self-limiting belief patterns and is an excellent crystal tool for meditation. Calcite can be helpful in removing negative and non-productive thoughts which inhibits growth. Optical Calcite is the crystal for you if you are in need of mental clarity, a boost of positivity, and chakra alignment. Just having it in your space elevates the mood and attracts optimism. Also, an excellent stone which works at cleansing the subtle bodies, optical calcite can help you in seeing the double meaning in what someone says to you.

    Optical Calcite is associated with seven (7) of the Chakras but especially resonates with the Third Eye Chakra.
