Latest Calcium carbonate Stories
Sally sees seashells down by the seashore. (Say that 5 times fast.) Sally never knew why seashells' minerals (calcium carbonate) could form two different compounds until now.
DALLAS, October 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SandlerResearch.org adds Global Calcium Carbonate Market 2014-2018 research report that projects the industry to grow at 7.54%

Study shows calcium carbonate takes multiple, simultaneous roads to different minerals, provides insight into trapping carbon dioxide in underground rock.
A new study suggests that Saharan dust played a major role in the formation of the Bahamas islands.
What do mollusks, starfish, and corals have in common? Aside from their shared marine habitat, they are all calcifiers — organisms that use calcium from their environment to create hard carbonate skeletons and shells for stability and protection.

Aragonite is a polymorph of the mineral calcite, both having the chemical composition CaCO3. Its structure differs from calcite and leads to a different crystal shape, an orthorhombic system with acicular crystals. By repeated twinning pseudo-hexagonal forms result. It may be columnar or fibrous, occasionally in branching stalactitic forms called flos-ferri (flowers of iron) from their association with the ores at the Carthinian iron mines. The type location for aragonite is Molina de...
Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed of the mineral calcite (calcium carbonate). The primary source of this calcite is usually marine organisms. These organisms secrete shells that settle out of the water column and are deposited on ocean floors as pelagic ooze (see lysocline for information on calcite dissolution). Secondary calcite may also be deposited by supersaturated meteoric waters (groundwater that precipitates the material in caves). This produces speleothems such as stalagmites...
