Donald B Peck Determining the Hardness of a Mineral

The cations (positively charged metal ions) of the carbonate minerals calcite Ca 2+, magnesite Mg 2+, siderite Fe 2+, and rhodochrocite Mn 2+ all have the same packing pattern, or crystal structure; and the same electrostatic charge. They are nearly the same size with the exception of the calcium ion, which is significantly larger.

The calcite group minerals are all hexagonal. They have Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn, or Zn divalent cations in 6-fold coordination with the CO 3 -2 groups, in a structure that is similar to that of NaCl. All members of this group show rhombohedral cleavage {01 2}, thus breaking into rhomb-shaped cleavage blocks.

Calcite and dolomite are very similar minerals. Both have the same hardness (H = 3), the same rhombohedral cleavage, and are found in identical geologic settings. The best way to tell one from the other is the acid test: a drop of 1 M HCl on calcite produces an instant, obvious fizz; a drop on dolomite produces slow or no obvious bubbling.
