The precipitated calcium carbonate is a salt of carbonic acid and calcium. At room temperature, it is mainly in the form of a white crystalline substance or a water-insoluble powder. In the wild, it occurs as a default component of many minerals and sedimentary rocks. Calcium carbonate is a raw material with a wide industrial use.
