The column-rule-width CSS property sets the thickness of the line that is drawn between columns by column-rule-style in a CSS multi-column layout.

.columns {
  columns: 2 600px;
  column-rule-style: dotted;
  column-rule-width: 3px;
}

Another way to go about it is to use the column-rule shorthand property, which combines column-rule-width, column-rule-style and column-rule-color.

.columns {
  columns: 2 600px;
  column-rule: dotted 3px #f8a100;
}
