Aragonite-type of light calcium carbonate was synthesized by the successive reaction using calcined-hydrous scallop shells and calcined lime stones in the aqueous system with Mg<sup>2+</sup> ions under the CO<sub>2</sub> bubbling. In order to obtain the high aspect ratios of aragonite, the reaction temperature and concentrations of Ca<sup>2+</sup> ions in the 2nd step were important. The aspect ratio of aragonite increased when the reaction temperature was higher in the 2nd step than in the 1st step of the successive reaction. When the smaller amounts of calcium source were added in the 2nd step than in the 1st step, and the reaction temperature was lower in the 2nd step than in the 1st step, large particles of aragonite were produced with no smooth surfaces. The successive reaction was useful to extend the variety of morphologies in aragonite.
