Can't find dolomite?

I'm creating the diy substrate that Aaron T suggests but I cannot find dolomite anywhere.
Is there a good/cheap replacement to keep the mag up? Or if someone has some can they ship to me and trust I will send the money once I get it?

Look in the garden centers. Dolomitic limestone. Also in stores that carry salt water stuff.

Dilution is the solution for the pollution.

Regular lime stone will do. Add a bit of some form of magnesium.

If I recall correctly, that is one of the items that is optional and can be skipped.
