Definition of Calcium:
(Ca) metallic element that occurs in many rocks and in seawater and is an essential macronutrient. As Ca+ it is an important regulatory ion in living cells, involved e.g. in regulation of enzyme activity, stimulation of muscle contraction, and control of secretion. As calcium salts (e.g. calcium phosphates), it is a major constituent of bone.[1].
This is the common definition for Calcium, other definitions can be discussed in the article
