Dolomite

Dolomite is a fairly well-known type of stone, which is also known under various other names such as Dololux, Gralux Gravier d'Or and Yorkshire chippings. The stone has a beautiful ochre colour (warm yellow-beige) and a unique, binding effect, as a result of which Dolomite is usually used in semi-paved areas in fine sizes of 0/5 mm and 0/15 mm. In addition, the chippings are used ornamentally in the size 5/15 on driveways, ornamental paths etc.

Properties

  • • Type of stone: Dolomite 
  • • Hardness: High
  • • Colour: Ochre (warm yellow - beige)
  • • Specific gravity: ± 1500 kg per m3 (5/15) / ± 1800 kg per m3 (0/5 and 0/15).
  • • Shape: Angular (broken)
  • • Special features: Binding effect when used in fine sizes because of the high levels of CaCO3. Please note: Some types of yellow limestone are similar in appearance to Dolomite, but do not bind as well. You can easily test whether something is limestone or not by filling a glass with vinegar and adding some 0/5 or 0/8 stones. If it reacts, it is limestone and not Dolomite!
