Calcite Group

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
AXO3
Name:
After the principal species in the group.
Calcite group structures are taken by nitrates and carbonates of relatively small cations, including Li, Na, Mg, Ca, Fe2+, Zn, Co2+, and Cd.

The structure of calcite and its related species is ionic and resembles that of NaCl, the place of the spherical Cl ions being taken by planar (CO3)2- or (NO3)1- groups. These groups are arranged in parallel position in the crystal with their threefold symmetry axes oriented along [0001]. This arrangement leads to the strong birefringence of calcite-group minerals.
