СaCO3 – marble powder – is a free-flowing mass obtained by crushing marble. Marble consists mainly of calcite with impurities of other minerals, which influence its color. It is a durable material, but easy to work with. Marble decomposes, releasing carbon dioxide, when heated or brought into contact with acids. Marble and powdered marble are widely used in the construction, chemical, and food industries. It is also utilized in the manufacture of paper, paint, and varnish. Please remember that the substances in your set are not suitable for use in food.
