Dolomite Buffalo

Spirit animals have been revered for millennia, making them a cherished and meaningful gift, carrying special significance. Many view spirit animals as guides or companions appearing in the form of animals, imparting medicine in the shape of guidance, protection, and wisdom. 

Dolomite, also called Dolostone, showcases a range of colors, including shades of green, pinks, greys, orange, and white. Being a softer gemstone, Dolomite is easily carved, making it a popular choice for animal carvings. The Dolomite Bear, combining the symbolism of the bear spirit animal with the properties of Dolomite, serves as a unique and aesthetically pleasing representation.

Dolomite is a carbonate mineral that can be found in various geological settings. It is named after the French mineralogist Déodat Gratet de Dolomieu, who first described it in the late 18th century. Dolomite typically forms in sedimentary rock environments through the alteration of limestone or lime mud. This alteration process involves the replacement of calcium ions in the mineral calcite with magnesium ions.

Dolomite is commonly associated with marine environments, such as shallow seas and lagoons, where its precursor, limestone, is abundant. The mineral can also be found in hydrothermal veins and as a gangue mineral in ore deposits. Dolomite crystals are often rhombohedral in shape and can vary in color, including shades of white, gray, pink, green, or brown.

The mineral has a wide range of applications, from being a source of magnesium and calcium in agriculture to its use as a decorative stone in the construction and sculpture industries. It is important to note that the properties and appearance of dolomite can vary depending on its specific geological context and the presence of other minerals in the formation.
