healing crystals

This dolomite is mined by Kidz Rocks from the Livingston Quarry in Palos Verde Peninsula of California.

Bulk Purchase Specimen

You are buying one rock. You will receive one rock like the ones in the photographs, not the exact rocks shown. Photographing and listing every crystal separately adds a lot in labor costs. We pass that savings on to you with lower prices and higher quality than the competition.

Dolomite is a common sedimentary rock-forming mineral that can be found in massive beds several hundred feet thick. They are found all over the world and are quite common in sedimentary rock sequences. Except in its pink, curved crystal habit dolomite is hard to distinguish from its second cousin, calcite.

Dolomite is used for manufacturing certain types of refractory bricks used in steel making. Dolomite is also used as a source of magnesium oxide for making magnesium metal and for chemical uses, such as the common laxative milk-of-magnesia. Dolomite is named for the French mineralogist Deodat de Dolomieu.

HEALING PROPERTIES

Dolomite is a gentle stone that encourages charitable actions, generosity and giving of all kinds, as well as receiving. It also encourages energetic thinking, original thinking, spontaneity, creativity, and manifestation. It can help develop stamina for dealing with hyperactive people. It is also used to stop energy leaks from the chakras, and to balance and align the chakras. It stabilizes both human and mineral energies, and when placed strategically in a home with other minerals they balance the energetic atmosphere.

It is a particularly good stone for relieving sorrow, and soothing hurt, loneliness, stress, and anxiety. Sometimes it is called the "herb" of rocks. In the physical realm it is used in crystal healing for strengthening bones, teeth, muscles, and the female reproductive system. It reduces the effects of PMS. Pink dolomite is also particularly good for insomnia.
