The chemical formula of mineral Calcioaravaipaite is indicated by PbCa2Al(F,OH)9. This mineral is usually found in a small epithermal lead-copper-silver deposit in a silicified breccia. Mineral Calcioaravaipaite is also most commonly found at its type of locality at the Grand Reef mine in Laurel Canyon, about 6 km northeast of Klondyke, Aravaipa mining district, Graham County, Arizona. USA. This mineral was named for the relationship with aravaipaite. Mineral Calcioaravaipaite is known to crystallize in the triclinic system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, this triclinic crystal system commonly comprises crystals having three axes, of which all are unequal in length and are positioned oblique to one another.

Mineral Calcioaravaipaite is usually found showing good cleavage under polarizing microscope. Mineral Calcioaravaipaite is most commonly found colorless or milk white in hand sample. The specific gravity measure of the mineral is usually found 4.85 grams per cubic centimeters. Most crystals of mineral Calcioaravaipaite are usually found transparent in appearance. Mineral Calcioaravaipaite is usually found showing brittle to conchoidal fracture when evaluated under polarizing light microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. This is a very brittle fracture producing small, conchoidal fragments. The crystal habit of mineral Calcioaravaipaite as described in the field of optical mineralogy usually includes fine crystaline crystals occuring as well-formed fine sized crystals. It can be also found massive in form. This is uniformly indistinguishable crystals forming large masses. The hardness measure of mineral Calcioaravaipaite when evaluated using the Mohs scale method is usually found 2.5. Mineral Calcioaravaipaite is most commonly found showing vitreous or glassy luster. This mineral Calcioaravaipaite is commonly found leaving a white streak when rubbed on white porcelain streak plate. Mineral Calcioaravaipaite is usually found showing biaxial negative figure when evaluated between crossed nicols of polarizing microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. Mineral Calcioaravaipaite is also most commonly found showing 0.0210 birefringence. It also shows strong dispersion. Calcioaravaipaite is a non-radioactive mineral as evaluated.
