I'm sure one of the MTS folk will give a better answer...

I imagine you could use it, but it looks like it's pretty lacking in the Magnesium (Dolomite is a mix of Magnesium carbonate and Calcium carbonate). I think that the presence of Magnesium is why a lot of people use dolomite, as opposed to just Calcium carbonate limestone/aragonite

Maybe you can use something else to add magnesium to the mix...
