Dolomite (also known as dolomite rock, dolostone or dolomitic rock) is a sedimentary carbonate rock that contains a high percentage of the mineral dolomite, CaMg(CO3)2. In old USGS publications, it was referred to as magnesian limestone, a term now reserved for magnesium-deficient dolomites or magnesium-rich limestones.
Dolomite is very common in the rock record, but the mineral dolomite is rarely observed forming in sedimentary environments. For this reason it is believed that most dolomites form when lime muds or limestones are modified by postdepositional chemical change. Some geologists are uncomfortable using the word "dolomite" for both a mineral and a rock of the same composition. They instead prefer using "dolomite rock" or "dolostone" when speaking of the sedimentary rock and "dolomite" when speaking of the mineral. Although these terms simplify communication and improve accuracy, many geologists continue to use the word "dolomite" for both the mineral and the rock. Dolomite is a good polished stone for relieving sorrow, and soothing hurt, loneliness and anxiety. It is a gentle stone that encourages charitable actions, generosity and giving of all kinds, as well as receiving. Helps us to see that everything happens for a reason.
