This paper reports the thermoluminescence (TL) and chemical characterization of natural calcite collected from Kodwa mines of the C.G. Basin. The sample was irradiated with a 10-Gy dose from an Sr-90 beta source. The heating rate used for TL measurements was 6.7 °/s. The sample had a good TL peak at approximately 127 °C and the corresponding kinetic parameter were calculated. The effect of annealing temperature is also described for natural calcite. The photoluminescence excitation spectrum at ~254 nm and the corresponding emission spectrum peak at 395 nm are reported. Inductively coupled plasma–activated emission spectroscopy (ICP–AES) was conducted to determine the percentages of elements in the calcite mineral.
