Whiting supplies CaO.
Whiting (CaCO3) is a fine grind of chalk (aragonite - marine
shell deposits). The purest sources are in England, France, and
Belgium. Other sources include marble, calcite ores, and sea
shells. Whiting and limestone are not necessarily the same
thing; limestone may contain considerable amounts of magnesium
(i.e. dolomite). Some suppliers do not distinguish, so be sure
to ask.
