PINOLITE

Large cut slice

Hohentauern, Lower Tauern Mountains, Austria

Pinolite (also called pinolith) is a metamorphic rock with a striking appearance. It resembles an abstract painting.

Pinolite is a grey to almost black dolomite with inclusions of white magnesite. The magnesite grains resemble pine nuts (hence the name). The dark colour of the dolomite is caused by graphite.

This slice is not polished, but has a smooth, silky finish.
