DOLOMITE

Dolomite, also known as "dolostone" and "dolomitenrock,"is a sedimentary rock composed primarily of the mineral dolomite, CaMg(CO2)3 Dolomite is slightly harder than limestone. Dolomite and limestone are used in similar ways. They are crushed and used as an aggregate in construction projects. They are kiln-fired in the manufacture of cement. They are cut into blocks and slabs for use as a dimension stone. They are calcined to produce lime. In some of these uses, dolomite is preferred. Its greater hardness makes it a superior construction material. Its lower solubility makes it more resistant to the acid content of rain and soil. In the chemical industry, dolomite is used as a source of magnesia (MgO). The steel industry uses dolomite as a sintering agent in processing iron ore and as a flux in the production of steel. In agriculture, dolomite is used as a soil conditioner and as a feed additive for livestock. Dolomite is used in the production of glass and ceramics.
