University of Minnesota's Mineral Pages: Calcite

In these rocks, 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.

What Are the Differences Between the Minerals Calcite and ...

Calcite is a calcium carbonate mineral while quartz is a silicon dioxide crystal. Visually, you cannot tell the difference in the mineral composition, but you can perform a test to determine if the crystal you have is calcite. Calcium carbonate reacts with an acid to produce bubbles on the surface of the crystal.

5.2 Chemical Weathering – Physical Geology

calcite + hydrogen ions + bicarbonate —–> calcium ions + bicarbonate. Calcite is the major component of limestone (typically more than 95%), and under surface conditions, limestone will dissolve to varying degrees (depending on which minerals it contains, other than calcite), as shown in Figure 5.12.

Calcite Group: Mineral information, data and localities.

Calcite group structures are taken by nitrates and carbonates of relatively small cations, including Li, Na, Mg, Ca, Fe 2+, Zn, Co 2+, and Cd. The structure of calcite and its related species is ionic and resembles that of NaCl, the place of the spherical Cl ions being taken by planar (CO 3) 2-or (NO 3) 1-groups. These groups are arranged in parallel position in the crystal with their ...
