The importance for the global carbon cycle, the P-T phase diagram of CaCO3 has been under extensive investigation since the invention of the high-pressure techniques. However, this study is far from being completed. In the present work, we show the existence of two new highpressure polymorphs of CaCO3. The crystal structure prediction performed here reveals a new polymorph corresponding to distorted aragonite structure and named aragonite-II. In situ diamond anvil cell experiments confirm the presence of aragonite-II at 35 GPa and allow identification of another high-pressure polymorph at 50 GPa, named CaCO3-VII. CaCO3-VII is a structural analogue of CaCO3-P21/c-l, predicted theoretically earlier. The P-T phase diagram obtained based on a quasi-harmonic approximation shows the stability field of CaCO3-VII and aragonite-II at 30-50 GPa and 0- 1200 K. Synthesized earlier in experiments on cold compression of calcite, CaCO3-VI was found to be metastable in the whole pressure-temperature range.
