Textbook dogtooth calcite specimens collected from Jebel Saghro, Morocco. Calcite is a very common mineral with just as many different variations and colours, it is highly reactive with many acids (such as hydrochloric acid) including weaker ones, which will make the calcite bubble and 'fizz' when the two come into contact with each other. Known to be fairly soft, it is quite low on the moh's scale of hardness (3).
