The Original Earth Glow, LLC is a boutique shop located in Covington, Louisiana. We specialize in beautiful, one-of-a-kind gifts and keepsakes crafted from Honeycomb Calcite©, a truly unique natural stone with a striking translucent quality and distinct mineral pattern. We also work with contractors seeking to make use of the material in their projects.
Honeycomb Calcite is a beautiful and impressive form of calcite mined exclusively in the state of Utah. Honeycomb Calcite, much like onyx and marble (in general characteristics) can provide a colorful replacement or dramatic accent stone for architectural and artistic applications. The name "Honeycomb Calcite" comes from the remarkable honeycomb appearance when viewing a polished surface. The "honeycomb look" is formed by the growth of long fibrous or tubular cells and crystals of honey-yellow calcite outlined by white membranes surrounding each cell. These cells grow in needle-like bundles. This "bundling" adds strength and stability to the stone enabling larger pieces to be mined and processed.
In addition to our Honeycomb Calcite offerings, we showcase and sell original artwork from talented artists in the area. Our gallery of works is growing daily, so come in and check out what we have to offer!
