Limestone—A Crucial and Versatile Industrial Mineral

“Limestone” means any rock formed . mostly of calcium carbonate (CaCO. 3), but to geologists, limestone is only one of several types of “carbonate rocks.” These rocks are composed of more than 50% carbonate minerals, generally the minerals calcite (pure CaCO. 3) or dolomite (calcium-magnesium carbonate, CaMg[CO. 3] 2) or both.

Limestone - Wikipedia

Limestone is composed mostly of the minerals calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate (CaCO 3). Dolomite, CaMg(CO 3) 2, is an uncommon mineral in limestone, and siderite or other carbonate minerals are rare. However, the calcite in limestone often contains a few percent of magnesium. Calcite in limestone is divided into low-magnesium and high-magnesium calcite, with the dividing line placed at a composition of 4% magnesium. High-magnesium calcite retains the calcite min
