Dolomite (CaMg(CO3)2)



Dolomite is calcium magnesium carbonate with rhombohedral shaped crystals. It is harder and more dense than calcite, and slightly more acid resistant.


Markets for Dolomite

As a mineral, Dolomite shares many of the same properties as limestone and can be used, for example, as an extender in paints, as a filler in carpet backing compounds and thermosetting resins and in the glass industry.


IMERYS is a leading producer of high brightness dolomite from production plants in Southwest France.
