DOLOMITE Usage And Synthesis

Definition

A mineral, CaCO3.MgCO3, used as an ore of magnesium and for the lining of openhearth steel furnaces and Bessemer converters.

Definition

dolomite: A carbonate mineral consistingof a mixed calcium–magnesiumcarbonate, CaCO3.MgCO3,crystallizing in the rhombohedralsystem. It is usually white or colourless.The term is also used to denotea rock with a high ratio of magnesiumto calcium carbonate. See limestone.

Agricultural Uses

Dolomite is a carbonate of calcium and magnesium. It is a mineral of formula CaMg(CO3)2 with a rhombohedral system. It has a density of 2.8 g/cc and hardness of 4 on the Mohs scale.
Dolomite has a vitreous lustre which is between transparent and translucent. It effervesces with hot concentratedh ydrochloric acid (HCl).
A carbonate-rich sedimentary rock of chemical or biological origin contains 50% or more carbonate, of which at least half is in the form of dolomite. The color of dolomite is darker than limestone and does not give any effervescence with cold and dilute HCl.
Dolomite may also contain iron and manganese. Depending on the proportion of dolomite and calcite, there are many transitional phases between calcareous dolomites and dolomitic limestones.
Dolomite has multiple applications. It is used in the manufacture of magnesium and its compounds. It is also used as building material, as a refractory for furnaces, as a fertilizer, for the removal of sulphur dioxide from stack gases and in ceramics.

Industrial uses

Dolomite is the carbonate mineral CaMg(CO3)2,often with small amounts of iron, manganese,or excess calcium, which replace some of themagnesium; cobalt, zinc, lead, and barium aremore rarely found.
Dolomite is a very common mineral, occurringin a variety of geologic settings. It is oftenfound in ultrabasic igneous rocks, notably incarbonates and serpentinites, in metamorphosedcarbonate sediments, where it may recrystallize to form dolomite marbles, and inhydrothermal veins. The primary occurrence ofdolomite is in sedimentary deposits, where itconstitutes the major component of dolomiterock and is often present in limestones.
Dolomite is normally white or colorlesswith a specific gravity of 2.9 and a hardness of3.5-4 on Mohs scale.
