Calcite is naturally colorless or white with a vitreous luster, though the introduction of other compounds during formation can result in a variety of colors. It is best known for its characteristic rhombohedron crystallization but can be found in other forms. Dogtooth Calcite happens when there is an overgrowth of terminations upon the crystal. Scalenohedral crystals resembling canine teeth give these specimens their name.
