Computer Simulations Indicate Calcium Carbonate Has a Dense Liquid Phase

Caption: This is an artistic rendition of liquid-liquid separation in a supersaturated calcium carbonate solution. New research suggests that a dense liquid phase (shown in red in the background and in full atomistic detail based on computer simulations in the foreground) forms at the onset of calcium carbonate crystallization.
