[Solved] What is the chemical formula of Dolomite?

The Correct Answer is CaMg(CO 3) 2.. Dolomite is a mineral of calcium magnesium carbonate consisting of anhydrous carbonate, preferably CaMg(CO 3) 2.; The term is often used for a predominantly mineral dolomite made of sedimentary carbonate rock. Dolostone is an alternative name often used for the dolomitic rock type.
