All Aragonite will turn into calcite at temperatures over 300℃. The name Calcite comes from the latin for “chalk”. There are over 800 different growth forms of calcite. Rainbow Calcite is found in large masses of red, pink, orange, yellow, white, light brown and sometimes green bands of calcite and aragonite.
