Additional information

Calcium fluoride will hydrolyse in the environment only to a very limited extent due to its low water solubility; liberated fluoride ions will react to form other fluorine-containing compounds. The behaviour of fluoride in water is dependent on pH and mineral content. Fluoride is deposited to sediment as insoluble complexes and is essentially immobile in soil due to its incorporation into insoluble complexes. Calcium is ubiquitous in the environment and is present as a number of mineral forms with limited mobility.
