Magnesium Carbonate is a A Non-Toxic & Safe Additive / Supplement
Magnesium carbonate is produced using high quality raw materials. Production facility is well equipped, well designed with fully automatic machinery and high technology drying system. Starting from the raw materials charging to packaging of finished goods, there is no manual touch and negligible atmospheric exposure. Safety and hygienic condition are well maintained in and around production area.
Magnesium carbonate is a magnesium salt with formula CMgO3. Its hydrated forms, particularly the di-, tri-, and tetrahydrates occur as minerals. It has a role as an antacid and a fertilizer. It is a magnesium salt, a carbonate salt and a one-carbon compound.
Magnesium carbonate is non-toxic.
The most common magnesium carbonate forms are the anhydrous salt called magnesite (MgCO3) and the di, tri, and pentahydrates known as barringtonite (MgCO3·2 H2O), nesquehonite (MgCO3·3 H2O), and lansfordite (MgCO3·5 H2O), respectively. Some basic forms such as artinite (MgCO3·Mg(OH)2·3 H2O), hydromagnesite (4 MgCO3·Mg(OH)2·4 H2O), and dypingite (4 MgCO3· Mg(OH)2·5 H2O) also occur as minerals.
Magnesite consists of white trigonal crystals. The anhydrous salt is practically insoluble in water, acetone, and ammonia. All forms of magnesium carbonate react with acids. Magnesium carbonate crystallizes in the calcite structure wherein Mg2+ is surrounded by six oxygen atoms. The dihydrate has a triclinic structure, while the trihydrate has a monoclinic structure.
References to “light” and “heavy” magnesium carbonates actually refer to the magnesium hydroxy carbonates hydromagnesite and dypingite (respectively).
