We deal in Limestone, calcium carbonate, precipitated calcium carbonate, ground/pulverized calcium carbonate, PCC, GCC, calcite, limestone, crushed marble, ground limestone, lime, chalk, whiting, champagne chalk, French chalk, albacar, and aeromatt.
Limestone Formula : CaCo3
Limestone Description : Produced by crushing, grinding, precipitation, and classifying high purity, white, calcite limestone.
Limestone Mineralogy :
Limestone ores can be found in two of the three major types of rocks: sedimentary and metamorphic. Sedimentary rocks, as the name suggests, form from sediment or from transported fragments deposited in water. Limestone, for example, is formed from inorganic remains, such as shells and skeletons. Metamorphic rocks-such as marble, slate, quartzite-form when a rock mass is subjected to great heat and pressure. The principal element in the calcium carbonate ore is calcium (Ca). The ore may contain other elements such as Magnesium (Mg), Iron (Fe) and Manganese (Mn)- that affect whiteness, hardness and specific gravity of Limestone.
