When the number of iron or manganese atoms exceeds magnesium, it is called iron dolomite or manganese dolomite. Trigonal crystal system, the crystal is rhombohedral, the crystal face is often bent into a saddle shape, and the polycrystalline twin crystal is common. The aggregates are usually granular. Pure to white; gray when iron; brown after weathering. Glass luster. It is the main mineral that makes up the dolomite.
