Abstract. Exposures of the biologic materials -- well-organized many functional structural systems -- are found to be attracting and interesting in scientists' work in many areas. The researchers direct their attention towards features, characteristics, and growth of many naturally-occurring bio-materials, and it is called in-vitro approach. According to the literature vital features of bio-mineralization in artificial and controlled crystallization or growth of inorganic, organic and semi-organic materials are complications. To identify the influences of single, poly-mineral formations on the kinetics of crystal growth, a thorough study has been taken. The thermodynamically most stable calcium with mixed minerals phases are grown at different pH values at 32oC. Experimental data support the mechanism of inhibition through molecular adsorption of poly-minerals on the surface of growing crystals. The grown crystals are characterized and reported in details.
