Geology of Pink Calcite
Calcite is one of the most common forms of calcium carbonate on Earth. It is an extremely common rock-forming mineral that can be found in sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks.
Geologists consider Calcite a ubiquitous mineral because it can be found everywhere. It is closely related to Aragonite and Dolomite. Like other UV light reactive crystals, Pink Calcite has the ability to temporarily absorb a small amount of light of a different wavelength. This change in the wavelength causes a temporary color change in the mineral to the person looking at it.
Calcite can form by direct precipitation from calcium-rich waters. As the concentration increases or the water amount decreases, Calcite crystals are able to form. Organisms also use Calcite to form their shells or other structural elements. Calcite is also a constituent of limestone and marble. Calcite forms in limestone as deposits in caves from calcium carbonate precipitation. When limestone is put under a great amount of heat and pressure, it is transformed into metamorphic rock marble.
Depending on the level of metamorphism the marble goes through will determine the size of the Calcite crystals that form.
