Calcium Carbonate is a white powder or colorless crystals, and is odorless and tasteless. It is very slightly soluble in water (a few ppm), and soluble in acids with evolution of carbon dioxide. Calcium Carbonate is one of the most stable, common, and widely dispersed materials, and occurs in nature as aragonite, oyster shells, calcite, chalk, limestone, marble, marl, and travertine.
