Calcite is formed in water and is very soft.
Calcite in it's most common shape is the three dimensional parallelogram called a rhomboid. A rhomboid has six parallel planes all connected to each other.
Clear calcite is most commonly found in rhomboid form. Green calcite comes in a variety of shapes. Honey calcite comes in chunks. Pink calcite is most commonly found in chunks which are then tumbled.
