Calcite | mineral | Britannica

Calcite, the most common form of natural calcium carbonate (CaCO 3), a widely distributed mineral known for the beautiful development and great variety of its crystals. It is polymorphous (same chemical formula but different crystal structure) with the minerals aragonite and vaterite and with several forms that apparently exist only under rather extreme experimental conditions.

Calcite

 · Calcite as a rock forming mineral. Calcite is very important rock forming mineral. Many marine sediments - like marlites, schists, opoka and others - contain significant amounts of calcite. Limestone is made of almost pure calcite. When these sediments are buried during subduction into the Earths crust or get into the contact with hot magma ...

CALCITE | Mardani Fine Minerals

Calcite is one of the most prolific minerals on earth, but thanks to its remarkable diversity, collectors often have several unique examples in their collections. In fact, the many shapes, colors, and associations of calcite make for a seemingly infinite number of permutations, allowing collectors to have entire suites of calcites where one is ...

Calcite

Calcite. Aragonite is a polymorph of calcite. In hand sample, calcite can be distinguished by its rhombohedral cleavage and, if the sample is translucent enough, its double refraction. In thin section, calcite can be distinguished by its parallel extinction. Physical Properties.

Calcite mineral information and data

Calcite. Named for an important industrial use of the mineral after the Latin word calx, or calce, for "lime.". Calcite is extremely common and widespread, and it is an important rock forming mineral and is common in limestone, marble, chalk, as a cement, hydrothermal veins, igneous rocks, and caves. Calcite is highly variable in color and ...

Calcite Mineral | Physical

 · Calcite is often the only mineral present, but in some sedimentary environments, calcite may be associated with dolomite, gypsum, anhydrite, chert, or halite. In hydrothermal veins, quartz and other common vein minerals such as pyrite, dolomite, fluorite, galena, and chalcopyrite may occur with calcite (Kauwenbergh, 2010) .

Because the mineral calcite is a calcium carbonate, its chemical formula is CaCO 3. No matter where calcite is found on Earth, it will have the chemical formula CaCO 3. Two minerals may have the same chemical formula but are different minerals because they have different crystal structures.

Calcite and Dolomite: Carbonate Minerals

Calcite and dolomite are very similar minerals. Both have the same hardness (H = 3), the same rhombohedral cleavage, and are found in identical geologic settings. The best way to tell one from the other is the acid test: a drop of 1 M HCl on calcite produces an instant, obvious fizz; a drop on dolomite produces slow or no obvious bubbling.

Calcite and Aragonite in Earth''s Carbon Cycle

 · Calcite is more stable in general than aragonite, although as temperatures and pressures change one of the two minerals may convert to the other. At surface conditions, aragonite spontaneously turns into calcite over geologic time, but at higher pressures aragonite, the denser of the two, is the preferred structure.
