Re: Crystals from grey rock and acetic acid

Hi Keith Sometimes called popcorn rocks or snowy rocks, I think what essentially is happening when you add the vinegar is that white aragonite crystals (the second most common polymorph of calcium carbonate; the first one being calcite) are growing on the grey dolomite rocks which contain other minerals especifically magnesium carbonate. The acid reacts mainly with the magnesium carbonate leaving behind the calcium carbonate aragonite white crystals together with some deposition of other salts as a result of efflorescence. Depending on room temperature and humidity you should be able to see the white crystals after approx. one week. For more info see the attached document. Hope this helps, Andres

Re: Book

Dear Sue, I am more than happy to give you the rest of the books, minus the three books that Danilo has asked for. Since you live in London that's even better for me! Add me as a contact and let me know the address details to confirm the cost of postage etc.  If you let me know before Thursday 4th, I'll be able to have them delivered to you in time for the new year and term -just about.  Regards, Janelle Prime.
