About TerueliteHide

Formula:
CaMg(CO3)2
Colour:
Black, dark grey, dark brownish
Name:
For the discovery locality, Teruel, Spain.
A variety of Dolomite

Dark or black iron rich (10% of the magnesium site) dolomite found as euhedral crystals embedded in gypsum-rich marls, originally described from Teruel, Aragón, Spain.

The name has been used in recent times for similar dolomite crystals of any colour, however the original descriptions clearly limit the name to the darker/black crystals so this should not be encouraged.
