Calcium Carbonate (and other pH buffers) are used to achieve an optimal pH in a casing. They are not a required material, if you do choose to use them try checking out http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/3288 or search the forums.

oyster shell will work too. You can buy it in landscaping departments and sometimes pet stores. You just have to gring it finer.
ge4 is correct though that it is just used as a buffer and isn't necessarily essential

Crushed oyster shell is the same thing as calcium carbonate. You can also use lime.
