The Dolomite mineral is commonly found in deposits of a sedimentary rock called dolostone, was named after the French mineralogist Deodat de Dolomieu. Basically, there are two types of materials referred to as dolomite: a true chemically uniform calcium magnesium carbonate with the chemical formula CaMg(CO3)2, and a dolomitic limestone an irregular mixture of calcium and magnesium carbonates.
It is believed that dolomite was formed by replacement of some of the calcium in a calcium carbonate limestone deposit with magnesium while the sediment was undergoing lithification, being transformed from layers of dead clam and other sea animal shells into crystalized calcite or calcium carbonate. The resulting dolomite mineral, CaMg(CO3)2 is a real double salt.
Dolomite Powder is available in different grades such as DL20 M and DL10 M. Further, we also provide Dolomite 20 M and 10 M, which are extremely fine micronized minerals used in various purposes.
In dolomite, the calcium and magnesium ions exist in separate layers in the crystal matrix, thus allowing several dolomite uses.
