Orange Calcite Mineral Specimen For SaleOrange Calcite

 
Rocks, Minerals, and FossilsCalcite, or calcium carbonate (CaCO3), is one of the world's most common minerals.  It's the main component of both limestone and marble, rocks used as dimension stones and in mortar for thousands of years.  (Limestone blocks were the primary construction material used in many of the ancient pyramids of Egypt and Latin America.)

When dissolved in water, Calcite can be precipitated from drips in limestone caves as stalactites and stalagmites.  Most Calcite forms in masses and aggregates, but good crystals do form in hydrothermal veins, alpine fissures, and pockets in basalts and other rocks.

Calcite is best recognized by its relatively low Mohs hardness (3), its vitreous luster, and its high reactivity with even weak acids like vinegar.  It's found in a rainbow assortment of colors, including yellow, brown, orange, pink, red, purple, blue, green, gray, black, white, and colorless.  You can see another type, Dogtooth Calcite, here.

The Orange Calcite specimens on this page are from Mexico, and look just like juicy pieces of real oranges!.
