    • Marine sediments are typically rich in calcium carbonate from shells, but increased acidity causes it to dissolve.
    • Researchers are exploring ways to convert carbon dioxide into calcium carbonate - the equivalent of dirt.
    • The shells of marine creatures are made of calcium carbonate, the same substance as chalk, which is vulnerable to acidity.
    • Calcium supplements come in various forms with the most popular forms being calcium citrate and calcium carbonate.
    • Maerl is composed of chalk - calcium carbonate - with an outer living plant layer.
    • Close to the area of their formation these waters are well oxygenated, cold, and supersaturated with dissolved calcium carbonate.
    • Last year six British geologists went diving in Greenland in search of ikaite, a rare form of calcium carbonate, which grows from the fjord floor in columns.
    • Calcium is found in chalk, marble, and limestone, which are all forms of calcium carbonate.
    • Karst features are formed by the dissolution of calcium carbonate in limestone bedrock by mildly acidic groundwater.
    • When water becomes supersaturated in dissolved calcium carbonate, solid calcium carbonate can grow by precipitation from the water.
    • Calcium carbonate is quite insoluble in water and sinks to the bottom.
    • Marl is a granular or loosely consolidated earthy material comprised largely of shell fragments and calcium carbonate precipitated in ponds.
    • When you make cement you make calcium oxide which can react with carbon dioxide and make calcium carbonate.
    • The skeletons of dead chromists accumulate on the floor of lakes and oceans, where they may become thick deposits of silica or calcium carbonate.
    • Mollusc shells are made primarily of calcium carbonate, with traces of strontium and other elements.
    • Insoluble calcium carbonate is basically chalk.
    • Members of the order and superfamily Craniacea have subcircular shells composed of calcium carbonate.
    • Some spicules are formed of the mineralized substances calcium carbonate and silica, while others are made of an organic substance called spongin.
    • Corals build their skeletons from waterborne calcium carbonate, the same mineral that makes limestone.
    • Oolithic limestones are composed of calcium carbonate in concentric spheres that were produced by high wave energy.
    • Stalactites grow when water laden with carbon dioxide and calcium carbonate drips from cracks or holes in the cave's ceiling.
    • Hard deposits in the cells, such as calcium carbonate and silica, may have a pronounced dulling effect on cutting tools.
    • Loosely speaking, calcium carbonate is limestone and there is an awful lot of limestone present throughout the world.
    • When the solution of calcium bicarbonate reaches the open cavern and the water evaporates, carbon dioxide is released and calcium carbonate remains.
    • Antacids based on calcium carbonate have been used for over 2,000 years.
    • The correct, balanced chemical formula for calcium carbonate is CaCO 3.
    • Organisms as diverse as phytoplankton, corals, crabs and molluscs lay down limestone or calcium carbonate skeletons.
    • Heating and agitation, after the introduction of sodium carbonate, precipitated calcium carbonate, and waste material settled.
