Difference Between Quicklime and Hydrated Lime | Compare ...

2018-8-16 · The key difference between quicklime and hydrated lime is that the quicklime (or burnt lime) contains calcium oxide whereas the hydrated lime (slaked lime) contains calcium hydroxide.. The major source for both quicklime and hydrated lime is the limestone.Therefore, like limestone, these compounds are also alkaline.We call quicklime as "burnt lime" because we produce it by the thermal ...

5.3: Sedimentary Rocks

Oolites are among the few limestone forms created by an inorganic chemical process, similar to what happens in evaporite deposition. When water is oversaturated with calcite, the mineral precipitates out around a nucleus, a sand grain or shell fragment, and forms little spheres called ooids (see figure).
