Chalk is a soft, white, porous, sedimentary carbonate rock, a form of limestone composed of the mineral calcite. Calcite is an ionic salt called calcium carbonate or CaCO3. It forms under reasonably deep marine conditions from the gradual deposit of minute calcite shells (coccoliths) shed from micro-organisms called coccolithophores. Flint (a type of chert) is extremely common as bands parallel to the bedding or as nodules embedded in chalk. It is probably derived from sponge spicules or further siliceous organisms as water is expelled upwards during compaction. Flint is often deposited nearly larger fossils such as Echinoidea which may be silicified (i.e. replaced molecule by molecule by flint).
Chalk, as seen in Cretaceous deposits of Western Europe, is unusual among sedimentary limestones in the thickness of the beds. Most cliffs of chalk have agreed few obvious bedding planes unlike most thick sequences of limestone such as the Carboniferous Limestone or the Jurassic oolitic limestones. This may indicate agreed stable conditions exceeding tens of millions of years.
