History | Science

Dog Tooth calcite gets its well-known scalenohedral crystal formation resembling dogs’ teeth due to growing in caves or geode cavities where the crystals have open space to form.
Chocolate Calcite is a fairly rare variety of calcite with earthy brown colors often resembling chocolate, caused by inclusions and pressure during the mineral's formation.
The sugary crystallization and shiny coating that these crystals have are caused by layers of clear calcite forming over the chocolate calcite crystals.

This particular formation of Chocolate Calcite AKA Raven's Wing Calcite is found in Mexico.

Metaphysical Properties

Besides its color and shape, "Raven's Wing Calcite" is a particularly fitting name for this stone, as Ravens are known as symbols of prophesy, insight, transformation, and intelligence, all qualities that are linked to dogtooth calcite, as well. Ravens are birds that thrive in quiet and stillness, and the darker color of chocolate calcite adds an extra element of grounding and tranquility.
Whereas we generally say that calcite gives "bestie" vibes, we would say that Raven's Wing Calcite gives "witch's familiar" vibes.

Photography

Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your crystal and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.

No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
