Wave Dolomite Cabochons

A pretty patterned semi precious gemstone cabochon known as Wave Dolomite, Rolling Hills Dolomite, or Desert Sandstorm.

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.

Dolomite is a fairly soft stone-about a 3.5 to a 4, so care should be taken when setting, wearing or cleaning your designer cabochon.

Metaphysical Properties: Wearing Dolomite cabochon jewelry is said to be good for relieving depression or sorrow.  It helps one detach from the drama around us.  Dolomite helps one experience love, compassion and appreciation.
