Calcium Sulfate (Natural anhydrite) CaSO4  0.209 gm/100 cc H2O @ 30 C

Calcium Sulfate half hydrate (Plaster of Paris) CaSO4-1/2 H2O  0.3 gm/100 cc 
@ 20 C

Calcium Sulfate dihydrate (CaSO4-2 H2O)  0.241 gm/100 cc H2O @ ? C, 0.222 
gm/100 cc @ 100 C

Calcium Chloride CaCl2 74.5 gm/ 100 cc H2O @ 20 C

Calcium Chloride dihydrate CaCl2-2 H2O  97.7 gm/100 cc H2O @ 0 C, 326 gm/100 
cc @ 60 C

Calcium Chloride hexahydrate CaCl2-6 H2O 279 gm/100 cc @ 0 C, 536 gm/100 cc 
@ 20 C

Calcium Chloride monohydrate CaCl2-1 H2O 76.8 gm/100 cc @0 C, 249 gm/100 cc 
@ 100 C

Pete talked about using calcium nitrate and finding it forms a precipitate 
when mixed with other salts. He is correct. I believe it is called a 
substitution reaction, if I recall correctly. A calcium nitrate solution 
mixed with a magnesium sulphate (Epsom Salts) solution would form calcium 
sulphate with the magnesium and nitrate left as ions in solution as 
magnesium nitrate is soluble in water.
