AbstractNatural precipitates of metastable polymorphs of CaCO3, such as vaterite, are rarely found in nature. However, spherical bodies composed of vaterite have been recognized in submilimetricthick microbial mats adn biofilms on volcanic substrates (St. Calixtinus Catacombs, Rome, Italy). Vaterite is formed beneath dense biofilms, where particular physicochemical conditions are produced by the microbial activity.
