Dolomite is a calcium, magnesium, carbonate mineral that commonly forms in small clusters of rhomehedrical shaped crystals with saddle-shaped formations. This mineral can also be found in masses or grains and appears as white, grey, brown, green, pink and black. The first traces of Dolomite in historical writings were by the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus in 1778. However, this mineral was named in honor of the French geologist Déodat de Dolomieu in 1791.
Dolomieu was a fascinating character, joining a knighthood at the age of 12, and later killing a man in a duel at the age of 18. He was then pardoned by Pope Clement XIII only one year into his life sentence. During an expedition to the northern alps of Italy, Dolomieu discovered this mineral and noted its difference from Limestone by performing a series of tests. These tests consisted of diluting Dolomite in hydrochrloric acid and recording a lack of effervescing, which should typically occur in Limestone. He published these findings and soon after, Nicolas Théodore de Saussure honored Dolomieu's discoveries by naming this stone after him.
