Dolomite is a calcium, magnesium, carbonate mineral that commonly forms in small clusters of rhomehedrical shaped crystals with saddle-shaped formations. This mineral can also be found in masses or grains and appears as white, grey, brown, green, pink and black. The first traces of Dolomite in historical writings were by the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus in 1778. However, this mineral was named in honor of the French geologist Déodat de Dolomieu in 1791. Striped Dolomite is shown in the image.
