The hydrothermal synthesis of calcite single crystal was studied by using a NaCl solution as a mineralizer. The solubility of calcite in a 3 mol kg−1 NaCl solution was measured by a weight-loss technique to be around 2 g l−1 at 500 °C and 100 MPa. An optically clear rhombohedral crystal of up to 1.0 mm could be grown in a hydrothermal NaCl solution. The growth of a homogeneous layer of calcite could be observed on the calcite seed at 400 °C.
