The Bacillus sp has a calcium carbonate crystal formation competent this isolated from rock environment. This calcium precipitating bacterium was identified by biochemical test. In this study, a microbiological aspect of calcium carbonate crystals the nature of crystal deposits of bacteria has been explained. The biogenic calcium crystals formations in CPB were analyzed by XRD, FT-IR method. It is claimed that the temperature is one of the causative factor for calcium carbonate crystals formation and in rock environment.

Keywords: Calcium precipitating bacteria; Calcium carbonate crystals formation; XRD; FT-IR
