Description: "DOGTOOTH" CALCITE
Santa Eulalia, Mun. de Aquiles Serdán, Chihuahua, Mexico
This Calcite shows the classic "dog's tooth" habit of the Santa Eulalia, Mun. de Aquiles Serdán, Chihuahua, Mexico specimens. The brown color comes from micro hematite inclusions. The tiny white to colorless crystals are probably second generation Calcites indicating that it may be an older piece as this type has not been common in recent finds. A dramatic collector's piece, it measures 6 x 5 1/4 x 4 inches.
