Dolomite may refer to: . Dolomite (mineral), a carbonate mineral Dolomite (rock), also known as dolostone, a sedimentary carbonate rock Dolomite, Alabama, unincorporated community in Jefferson County Dolomite, California, unincorporated community in Inyo County Dolomites, section of the Alps Triumph Dolomite (193440), sporting cars made by Triumph Motor Company
The name dolomite is also used when describing the sedimentary carbonate rock dolostone because it is primarily composed of the mineral dolomite. The dolomite mineral, when crystalised, forms pink to grey or white crystals. Small amounts of iron give dolomite mineral crystals a yellow to brown tint. A high manganese content gives the crystals a
Dolomite, type of limestone, the carbonate fraction of which is dominated by the mineral dolomite, calcium magnesium carbonate. Along with calcite and aragonite, dolomite makes up approximately 2 percent of the Earths crust. Learn more about the structure, properties, and uses of dolomite in this article.
Richgro Dolomite Lime can be used in conjunction with other fertilisers and may assist in nutrient intake. A natural product, it has been mined from natural sources, and no added chemicals have been used in the process. As the product is natural, variations in moisture and appearance will occur between batches.
A dolomite section of Andamooka Limestone exposed in Axehead Quarry near Roxby Downs and developed for supply of construction material contains 41.1% MgCO 3. Tertiary. In the Lower SouthEast, dolomite has been formed by metasomatic replacement of bryozoal limestone in close proximity to faults. The dolomite is usually pink and of variable
Particle researchers make use of dolomite to detect exotic particles which are minute in nature, thus boosting the global dolomite mining market. It is also finding applications in float glass production and this will further the growth of the global dolomite mining market. Dolomite is used as a glazing ingredient in the pottery and ceramic
Dolomite and ferroan dolomite occur frequently as pseudomorphs after calcite and also after aragonite. Rarely pseudomorphic after cerussite, baryte and fluorite. Several species have been recognized as incrustation or substitution pseudomorphs after dolomite crystals. These include siderite, calcite, smithsonite, quartz, talc, limonite and
Dolomite is used to describe both a mineral and a rock. The mineral is the pure form with a defined crystal structure and chemical formula, whereas dolomite rock is composed chiefly of the mineral Dolomite, but also contains impurities such as Calcite, Quartz, and feldspar.
