Dolomite (Mineral) an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The proportion of dolomite relative to limestone increases markedly backward in geological time. A limestone to dolomite ratio of 10:1 characterizes Mesozoic carbonates; in the Precambrian this ratio is 1:3. Modern carbonates, on the other hand, are almost exclusively limestone. This is one of the most obvious trends visible in the earth's

Another form of limestone exists, which is dolomite. Dolomite is based on the dual carbonate of calcium-magnesium carbonate, and the properties of this stone are influenced by this difference in composition. Dolomites generally have higher densities, lower absorptions, greater compressive and bending strengths, and higher abrasion resistance
