It is naturally occurring and consist high levels of calcium and magnesium carbonate with small amounts of other minerals. Lime is extracted from underground mines all over the world.

Various Liming Materials

Ground limestone: Ground limestone contains CsCO3 and some impurities. But some limestone also includes MgCO3. If ground limestone contains 1-6% Mg is called Calcite limestone and if it has 6%Mg or more it is called Dolomitic Limestone.

Burned limestone: It is a ground limestone that is obtained after exposed to high temperature to remove carbon dioxide. Magnesium oxide (MgO) will also be present if it was in the ground limestone prior to being cooked. It must be handled carefully because it reacts quickly with water creating hydrated lime and releasing large amounts of heat.

Hydrated Lime: It is calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)2). It is very fast acting and powdery lime material. It is caustic and can easily burn plants that are already established.
