@Streetwind Dolostone in the current version can be ground into lime and used as a new pigment, my apologies for not mentioning that in my first post! Bauxite is primarily aluminum bearing irl, so for the sake of gameplay mudstone ( which can have a high Al content ) could be used as an imperfect substitute ( and I will be adding this ).

I was actually about to ask why is Mudstone supposed to be a Bauxite substitute - thanks for clearing that up!

Regarding that idea - since it would be an imperfect substitute, you could make it so that you would need 2x pulverized mudstone (or heck, even 4x pulverized mudstone) as a replacement for 1x pulverized bauxite in the refractory brick recipe

@StratatelesThanks for all your good suggestions both here and on the modDB page! My plan was to use 2x pulverized mudstone for 1x pulverized bauxite, or potentially requiring more per brick-tier. On that topic, I will be allowing olivine to generate in both basalt and gabbro in addition to peridotite so the increase in rock types doesn't affect gameplay too heavily.
