Remarkable facts of Calcium carbonate

Post  bejoy on Thu Oct 05, 2017 12:14 am

Calcium carbonate or CaCO3 is one of chemical compound found in the rocks as a mineral calcite and aragonite mostly particularly as a limestone, chalk or a marble. Although the fact that they are available in various forms they are chemically similar but differ physically. They differ in terms of whiteness, thickness, purity and homogeneity.

Similar to limestone, calcium carbonate is a biogenic rock, and is more compressed than chalk. Calcium-carbonate is a bristly-crystalline, metamorphic rock alike marble that is formed when chalk or limestone is re-crystallized. Huge sediments of marble are obtained in North America and in Europe for example in Carrara, Italy, where the pure white "statuario marble" is found. Calcium carbonate crystals are also described as calcite.
