Caribbean Calcite is a relatively new crystal discovery found in Pakistan in 2019. Caribbean Calcite is only found in Pakistan and is a rare combination of minerals. It is a combination of blue calcite with white and brown aragonite. The coloration varies from a subtle sky blue, to bright vibrant aqua hues. It can even have hints of mint green present. The brown and white aragonite appearance can occur in various patterns of swirls, stripes and bands. 

Caribbean Calcite measures at 3 on the MOHS scale, meaning this mineral is very soft and fragile. Be sure to take extra care and precaution while working with and also cleansing this stone.

Sky Blue Quartz was originally mistaken for Caribbean Calcite and is still often labelled as Caribbean Calcite. As we mentioned above, Caribbean Blue Calcite is only found in Pakistan. When comparing the two together, you can see quite the difference between them.
