Calcite is a very common mineral -- but common doesn’t mean boring. This stone appears in a stunning array of colors and formations. Transparent calcite has an ethereal beauty created by its mysterious properties of double refraction, and once you pick it up, you hate to put it down. I designed this table runner to capture calcite’s distinctive shape and delicate refraction. It makes a perfect wedding gift, creates elegant statement on any dining table or buffet, and is a fun and easy project to knit.
