Calciphyre

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
An obsolete term for a metacarbonate rock containing a conspicuous amount of calcium silicate and/or magnesium silicate minerals.

The term carbonate-silicate rock should be used in preference if the non-carbonate mineral content is higher than 50 vol.%, alternatively the term impure marble should be used.
