Calcite Minerals

Calcite is one of the most common minerals. It occurs in a wide variety of shapes and colors, and is a major part of the earth's rock. Calcite belongs to the calcite group of minerals, a group of carbonates that are related to the calcite group of carbonates. They are similar in many physical properties, and may partially or fully replace one another, forming a solid solution series. All members of the calcite group crystallize in the trigonal system, have perfect rhombohedral cleavage, and exhibit strong double refraction in transparent rhombohedrons.

Calcite Description:

Calcite is one of the most common minerals. It occurs in a wide variety of shapes and colors, and is a major part of the earth's rock. Calcite belongs to the calcite group of minerals, a group of carbonates that are related to the calcite group of carbonates. They are similar in many physical properties, and may partially or fully replace one another, forming a solid solution series. All members of the calcite group crystallize in the trigonal system, have perfect rhombohedral cleavage, and exhibit strong double refraction in transparent rhombohedrons.

There are twomorphous to each other, Calcite and Aragonite. Calcite and Aragonite have different crystal structures. Calcite and Aragonite form orthorhombic crystals. Sometimes the crystals of Calcite and Aragonite are too small to be seen by the naked eye. Microcrystalline forms of Calcite or Aragonite may not be the same as the real thing.

Calcite is colourless or white when pure but may be of almost any colour—reddish, pink, yellow, greenish, bluish, lavender, black, or brown—owing to the presence of diverse impurities. It may be transparent, translucent, or opaque.
