Dogtooth calcite is found in limestone caves that consist of very large calcite crystals resembling dog's teeth due to the pointed crystal habit that they form in. They form through mineral precipitation of water-borne calcite. Dogtooth calcite crystals are not limited to caves, but can grow in any open space including veins, fractures, and geodes.
Dog tooth calcite is a powerful energy amplifier and cleanser. It has been used to help remove negative energies from the environment, clear internal blockages, and lift stagnant energy. It is also believed to help provide clarity and insight into our own personal truths and the circumstances we encounter in life.
This specimen says "bold" all the way. Its rich shades of browns and rusty reds along with its pointed texture is quick to capture one's attention and spark curiostiy. The chocolate colored points are beautifully covering the entire face of this specimen. The bottom side tells another story with its collision of unique colors and patterns. This dogtooth calcite is truly one of a kind.
