Answer:

Perhaps by filtration thru #"Celite"#.....

Explanation:

Well, here, what works, works. You have a cloudy precipitate of #Ca(OH)_2#/#CaCO_3#, the which will probably pass thru filter paper. #"Celite"#, aka #"Filter aid"# is diatomaceous earth, and is commonly used to filter solutions.... And so you pass the solution (under suction) thru a frit lined with the stuff.....and the lined frit should retain the fine precipitate. Good luck.
