Dogtooth Calcite Mineral SpecimenDogtooth Calcite

 

Rocks, Minerals, and FossilsDogtooth Calcite (CaCO3), also called Dogtooth Spar, is a speleothem, defined as a secondary mineral deposit that forms inside a cave.  Most Dogtooth Calcite crystallizes in limestone caves, near standing pools of water where crystals can grow for a very long time.

Dogtooth Calcite crystals are typically scalenohedral, meaning the sides are scalene triangles (triangles in which each side is a different length).  The pointy, tooth-shaped crystals are what give Dogtooth Calcite its name.

Calcite is one of the world's most common minerals, with over 300 types of Calcite crystals.  You can see another type, Orange Calcite, here.  The Dogtooth Calcite specimens on this page are (appropriately) from Chihuahua, Mexico.
