This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
CaCO3
A variety of Aragonite

Much 'Tarnowizite' has been identified as a mixture of Aragonite and Cerussite, but Plumboan Aragonite with up to 3%PbCO3 may be homogeneous.

Originally reported from Tarnowskie Góry (Tarnowitz), Upper Silesia (Śląskie), Poland.
