This is a wonderfully patterned rare stone known as Wave Dolomite, Rolling Hills Dolomite, or Desert Sandstorm . This stone was discovered years earlier in a small pocket in Mexico and another small pocket has now been found again. It is a stone that is in high demand.
Dolomite is a sedimentary carbonate rock and is found all over the world. Dolomite is both a mineral and a rock. The mineral is the pure form, and Dolomite rock is composed mostly of Dolomite but also with impurities such as Calcite, Quartz, and Feldspar. It is named for the French mineralogist, Deodat de Dolomieu. Dolomite is a fairly soft stone-about a 3.5 to a 4.
