Wave Dolomite is also known as Rolling Hills Dolomite, It has a very nice pattern of striped to wavy lines. The undulating pattern in this material makes for unusual and eye catching stones. Wave Dolomite is a great material for beginners, because it cuts easily and polishes quickly with diamond, tin oxide or cerium oxide. A quick final polish with green rouge can sometimes increase the shine. Dolomite is a sedimentary carbonate rock, similar to calcite but with magnesium as an added element. Dolomite is found all over the world. It is both a mineral and a rock. The mineral is the pure form, and Dolomite rock is composed mostly of Dolomite but also with impurities such as Calcite, Quartz, and Feldspar. It is named for the French mineralogist, Deodat de Dolomieu
As with all stones, natural fissures can be present. These fissures should be inspected prior to cutting, trimming, and shaping. Stabilizing fissures with clear Opiticon jewelers epoxy may be considered.
