Mountain Aura Crystals

Dogtooth calcite, otherwise known as dogtooth spar, is found in limestone caves that consist of very large calcite crystals resembling dogs’ teeth (hence the name). They form through the precipitation of water-borne calcite. Dogtooth spar crystals are not limited to caves but can grow in any open space including veins, fractures, and geodes. It is generally found in colors ranging from clear through golden, white, grey, tan, and brown. The sharp tooth-shaped crystals typically consist of triangular crystal faces that form unequal triangles. Members of the Calcite family are carbonate minerals and are the most stable polymorphs of calcium carbonate. Calcite is derived from the German word “Calcit”, which is a term the Latin word for lime from the 19th century. Calcite can be dissolved by water and is not water friendly. Calcite also has an unusual characteristic called “retrograde solubility” in which it becomes less soluble in water as the temperature increases. Calcite is also quite soft with a Mohs hardness of 3 and is available worldwide in over 300 different shapes and styles occurring naturally.
