Crystal Calcite is a versatile, natural mineral used to create many types of inlay.
Calcite can be used as-is, or dyed to emulate a variety of luxurious gem stones such as sapphire blue, ruby red, jade green, and more. Other materials can be mixed in to enhance its appearance as well, such as metal filings, Mother-of-pearl, or pearlescent pigments that add a shimmering translucent chatoyance effect.
Note that these products are made from nature: there may be variations in color and minor impurities which add to the overall natural aesthetic.
Drilling, sawing, sanding or machining wood products can expose you to wood dust, a substance known to the State of California to cause cancer. Avoid inhaling wood dust or use a dust mask or other safeguards for personal protection. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov/wood.
