ZEBRA DOLOMITE

Falkenberg Railway Tunnel,
Hain im Spessart, Bavaria, Germany


Dolomite is a sedimentary rock composed primarily of the mineral dolomite (Calcium Magnesium Carbonate). In most cases it is thought to form by the alteration of lime mud and limestone by magnesium-rich groundwater.

Zebra dolomite is a very unusual variety of this rock characterised by alternating layers of fine-grained grey dolomite and coarse-grained white crystalline dolomite. The zebra texture was created after the rock was formed but precisely how is not fully understood.

This specimen has been cut and polished on one face.
