Dispensing Bottles

Geologists use dilute (5% to 10%) hydrochloric acid when testing carbonate rocks and minerals in the field and laboratory. A dispensing bottle is used to apply one drop of dilute acid when performing the test. These bottles are not recommended for use with other types of acids, acids of higher concentrations, or for long-term storage.

Acid dispensing bottles
Dispensing bottles for dilute acid in 1/2 ounce and 1 ounce sizes. They consist of three parts: bottle, dispensing tip, and screw-on cap. We have a detailed article that explains how to test rocks and minerals with hydrochloric acid. Most carbonate minerals and rocks containing them will effervesce in contact with dilute (5% to 10%) hydrochloric acid. These bottles are also used in classrooms when teachers supply white vinegar to their students for use in place of acid. Details about the "vinegar test" can be found here.
