Aragonite, like Calcite, is a polymorph of natural calcium carbonate. The two minerals are very similar and often difficult to distinguish from one another. However Aragonite has a higher hardness and specific gravity. It’s generally colourless to white / grey, and can be found stained in a variety of colours by various trace minerals in its particular environment.
Aragonite is the main component of many organic substances, such as pearl and coral. The iridescent surface of mother – of – pearl, for example, is a layer of Aragonite which the mollusk excretes.
