Limestones and dolomites

Limestones and dolomites. Limestones and dolomites are collectively referred to as carbonates because they consist predominantly of the carbonate minerals calcite (CaCO 3) and dolomite (CaMg[CO 3] 2).Almost all dolomites are believed to be produced by recrystallization of preexisting limestones, although the exact details of this dolomitization process continue to be debated.

Dolomite

Dolomite, type of limestone, the carbonate fraction of which is dominated by the mineral dolomite, calcium magnesium carbonate [CaMg(CO 3) 2].. General considerations. Along with calcite and aragonite, dolomite makes up approximately 2 percent of the Earth's crust. The bulk of the dolomite constitutes dolostone formations that occur as thick units of great areal extent in many sequences of

The calcite rhombs have nearly opaque cream-coloured cores, but are gemmy, transparent and colourless at the margins. The reverse of the specimen (Photograph 2) shows that the dolomite appears to have formed as platy layers of crystallites, initially epimorphous perhaps, over a druse of calcite (?) crystals that have subsequently dissolved away.

Clumped isotope thermometry of

Clumped isotope compositions of slowly-cooled calcite and dolomite marbles record apparent equilibrium temperatures of roughly 150-200 C and 300-350 C, respectively. Because clumped isotope compositions are sensitive to the details of T-t path within these intervals, measurements of the ∆ 47 values of coexisting calcite and dolomite can place new constraints on thermal history of low

Dolomite

Dolomite is, after calcite, the second most important and abundant of the carbonate minerals. Chemically and structurally, it may be regarded as calcite with half the calcium ions replaced by magnesium. Iron or manganese may substitute for magnesium in dolomite, forming isostructural series with ankerite and kutnohorite.

A Raman spectroscopic comparison of calcite and dolomite

Aug 01, 2021Calcite has a trigonal structure with two molecules per unit cell, and dolomite has a hexagonal structure. This is more likely to cause the splitting and distorting of the carbonate groups. Another cause for the difference is the cation substituting for Mg in the dolomite mineral.

Dolomite: A sedimentary rock known as dolostone

Dolomite is thought to form when the calcite (CaCO 3) in carbonate mud or limestone is modified by magnesium-rich groundwater. The available magnesium facilitates the conversion of calcite into dolomite (CaMg(CO 3) 2). This chemical change is known as dolomitization. Dolomitization can completely alter a limestone into a dolomite, or it can

The contribution of Mg2+ from high-Mg calcite would be minimal and account for ratios far less than 0.1 Mg2+/Ca2+ [Mackenzie et al., 1983]. In carbonate-bearing regions, the weath-ering of dolomite contributes the majority of Mg2+
