Calcium Carbonate (a.k.a. CaCO3) is a non-toxic and odorless inorganic salt, commonly found as a white mineral (calcite) which occurs naturally in chalks, limestones and marbles. These rocks are classified as limestones, a general term used for a rock containing varying proportions of calcite and dolomite. In nature, it can also be found as the main component of shells, pearls and eggs. The quality of Calcium Carbonate depends on some factors: purity, whiteness, homogeneity, and thickness. Calcium carbonate is a very versatile mineral filler and has in a wide variety of applications, most notably in the paper, construction and food industries.
