When talking about chalk, perhaps our minds automatically picture white or colored sticks used in classrooms. Nobody would blame you, though, because these manmade chalks (usually made from other carbonate-based minerals and gypsum) are what we generally associate the word with nowadays. In this article, however, we will be talking about natural, calcite chalk: those ones that you may have seen as white cliffs, caves, and other large rock formations.
Chalk is calcium carbonate in the form of the mineral calcite and is found in many places all over the world. The word “chalk” probably originated from the Latin word “calx”, which basically means “lime”.
Chalk is a limestone rock primarily made from calcite shells of foraminifera and calcareous algae, among various other planktons. This stone was formed millions of years ago and has been mined for centuries because of its widespread industrial uses.
Aside from those, chalk is also believed to possess healing and cleansing abilities. Some, go to chalk formations, especially near the sea because being near it brings the feelings of ease and calm. It’s also thought to purify negative energies and promote a sense of peace in a person.
People also use chalk for its healing benefits on the physical body. Some even use powdered natural chalk to relieve pain and purify the skin. Other physical benefits include strengthening teeth and bones. It can also protect you from the harmful effects of electronic smog.
And since chalk is still basically calcite, it also shares benefits with this mineral. It encourages spiritual growth and also helps out in clearing negative thoughts. If you feel stagnant, demotivated, and suffocated by the toxicity of the world around you, chalk can help cleanse and purify these energies to restore balance.
