Banded Calcite, also known as Onyx Marble, Alabaster Onyx, or Mexican Onyx, is a visually striking form of Calcite that features distinctive, colorful bands or stripes; however, it is not true Onyx. These bands are typically formed from alternating layers of Calcite and other minerals, such as Aragonite, which result from the slow precipitation of calcium carbonate. The variations during formation lead to the diverse range of colors seen in banded Calcite, including hues of white, yellow, brown, green, and pink.


The aesthetic appeal of Banded Calcite makes it a popular choice for decorative purposes. It's commonly used in the creation of ornamental objects, such as vases, bowls, and sculptures, as well as in architectural elements.


In terms of metaphysical properties, Banded Calcite has various healing and spiritual benefits. It amplifies energy, cleanses negative energies, and promotes emotional healing. Each color within Banded Calcite is associated with different healing properties; for example, green Banded Calcite is said to bring balance and emotional calm, while pink Banded Calcite is associated with love and compassion.
