The synthesis of calcium tetraborate was investigated in a temperature ranging from 800℃ to 900℃ using the solid-state reaction method. The synthesis was done using ammonium tetraborate tetrahydrate as the source of boron. At temperatures of 800 ℃ and 880 ℃, the mixed phases from different compounds were formed. At the optimum temperature of 840℃, the mixed phase was only composed of meta and tetraborate phases. A 2wt% excess of ammonium tetraborate tetrahydrate led to the calcium tetraborate phase formation. X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD) confirmed the monoclinic structure at the optimum temperature of 840℃ and by 2wt% excess of ammonium tetraborate tetrahydrate. Formation of BO3 and BO4 units  composition and morphology of the prepared sample were studied by Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM). The stoichiometry of the prepared powders was almost the same as the theoretical amounts, and powder particles exhibited some monoclinic characteristics.
