Short summary
•Vaterite was synthesized from a NaCl-saturated CaCO3 solution at 23-91°C •Vaterite occurred as pure or dominating phase and amounted up to 235 mg per experiment •The precipitation technique allows thermal and isotopic equilibration and enables oxygen and clumped isotope analyses •18α(vaterite-H2O) has the same temperature dependence as calcite •Vaterite δ18O values can hardly be distinguished from calcite (offset +0.0±0.4‰) •Clumped isotope values are indistinguishable from calibration data
•Vaterite was synthesized from a NaCl-saturated CaCO3 solution at 23-91°C •Vaterite...
