Origin and distribution of mineral species in limestone

2016-6-8  More than 80 mineral species are known to result from secondary chemical reactions in solutional limestone caverns. These minerals are transitional and end-products of carbonate wall rock interactions with ground water and organic residue. Bacteria are often critical in fixing various ions in

Limestone Types, Properties, Composition, Formation, Uses

Calcite, dolomite and aragonite are limestone minerals so where did they came from. It is a sedimentary rock. It forms predominantly on the sea floor where material rich in calcium carbonate (‘calcareous’ material) accumulates. This calcareous material may be organic, chemical or detrital in origin.

2016-9-28  Main thing to look for in any limestone formation are fossils, in my opinion. Depending on the age and type of deposit, these could include ancient organisms or more contemporary molluscs and even vertebrates. Crystals of calcite or other "soft" minerals (dolomite, gypsum, etc.) may also be encountered, depending on the deposit type.

Where Does Marble Come From? - Limestone

They’re simply other minerals found in the rock at the time of crystallization. The color swirls you see, or marbling, are made up of different minerals that were found alongside the limestone. These minerals decide the resulting marble’s color and patterns, as the minerals react differently to heat and pressure than limestone does.
