Lithothamnium calcareum
(Coralline Algae)

Lithothamnium calcareum is also referred to as red or coralline algae. It can be found off the coast of Brittany, in the Mediterranean, in Scandinavia and in Ireland and belongs to the Corallinaceae family of red algae. After dying, the algae sinks to the sea floor where it mineralizes. This marine sediment is dried after harvesting and then ground to a fine white powder.
