Do all buffers have Mg and Ca?
    #3898881 - 03/10/05 06:56 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Or is it just dolamite lime? Specifically, oyster shells. I know they have Calcium but what about Mg? Sorry, I know this is a silly question :smile:

Composition of crassostrea virginica shell (presented as oxides) in percentages:

calcium?53.6
carbon?42.5
sodium?0.33
magnesium?0.32
silicon?0.17
moisture?0.59
sulfur?0.18
strontium?0.11

That is from my zoology book, we are currently learning about molluscs and did a clam dissection just the other day, hope it helps...:)
