Rolling Hills Dolomite (travertine), also known as Wave Dolomite, Rolling Hills Dolomite, Mexican Dunes Dolomite or Desert Storm Dolomite, this amazing material deserves it’s many names, It is a very striking lapidary material from Mexico that exhibits fascinating, repeating orbs and waves of tan and mahogany brown in a very eye catching pattern. The hardness of the material is much softer than agate or jasper, but will still take a good polish to produce some great cabs or display pieces. It makes a great item to put in one’s collection.
Please enlarge and view the photographs for more detailed views. Shown wet to simulate polish. As with all natural rock, there may be fractures or pits to seal or work around. Each slab has the approximate dimensions listed. I use the longest and widest point and the thinnest, it’s not averaged.
We have worked hard with the lighting and the settings on the camera so that the colors are very accurate. Individual settings may affect color viewing on various devices and I cannot predict what your device will do, but on my computer, they’re dead on for color. I appreciate your business!
