An adequate geochemical model of dolomitization requires a knowledge of the stability of dolomite. In theory, the equüibrium constant for the dolomitization reaction can be obtained by a variety of ways: (1) experimental study of equihbrium interaction between calcite, dolomite, and water, (2) calculation from thermodynamic data, and (3) study of the interaction of calcite, dolomite, and water in natural systems. Experimental efforts to determine the calcium-magnesium activity ratio in solutions which have equilibrated with both calcite and dolomite or to determine the ion activity product for dolomite at temperatures less than 200°C have been unsuccessful. The rate of...
