Short summary
A database of a modern metastable cold-water mineral (ikaite) and its replacement mineral (glendonite) spanning 540 million years has been created to understand their distribution in space and time. A significant body of evidence suggests that glendonite occurrences are restricted mainly to cold-water settings; however they do not occur during every glaciation or cooling event reported from the Phanerozoic. This compilation improves our understanding of climatic conditions of the past.
