Note:  This is softer material than most other crushed rock we have available.  It’s tricky to tumble and polish and not best suited for beginners or click on the link for special instructions for softer material.  We suggest running this rock alone and start with the 120-220 Silicon Carbide Grit

Calcite is a Carbonate mineral that is most widely distributed on the Earth’s surface.  It is a common constituent of sedimentary rocks with Limestone in particular.  A Calcite formation can take on many different shapes and sizes which is dependent on the location, ground water occurrence and temperature.  Calcite is usually white or colorless but can be gray, red, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown or black.  The deeper the color is usually indicative of the definitive impurities from the earth or water.
