Dolomite, which is also known as dolostone, is a sedimentary carbonate rock that is composed of mineralized calcium magnesium carbonate, along with various trace impurities. These are typically either iron or manganese, with the former imparting a yellow or brown hue, and the latter a pinkish color. It is nameafter the French geologist Déodat Gratet de Dolomieu (1750-1801), who first described it in what are now known as the Dolomite Alps in Northern Italy, in 1791. Dolomite often replaces certain proportions of limestone, and where this has happened, the resulting material is known as dolomite or magnesian limestone. It has a vitreous, pearly, or waxy luster and a white streak.
