A group of minerals having perfect basal cleavage and capable of splitting into thin laminae is called mica. Mica is naturally occurring minerals in nine species. The two principal Mica types of commercialimportance
Garnet is a mineral abrasive produced from naturally occurring almandite garnet. It is produced by processing beach sand and grading to exact specifications. Due to its low free silica, Garnet abrasive is widely used in sand/grit...
Rocks that are rich in kaolinite are known as Kaoling, kaolin, Kalaba or china clay. China Clay falls under Kaolinite group of clays. It has the usual compositions of Al2O3, 2SiO2, 2H2O, Hydrous Aluminium Silicate.
The Dolomite mineral is commonly found in deposits of a sedimentary rock called dolostone, was named after the French mineralogist Deodat de Dolomieu.Basically, there are two types of materials referred to as dolomite
Natural Fuller Earth is also called ground clay it is the green Clay or Bentonite and is mostly used for body detoxification and cleansing. Green clay is considered to be the most versatile remedy nature provides.
Bentonite deposits are normally exploited by quarrying. Extracted bentonite is distinctly solid, with the moisture content of approximately 30%. The material is initially crushed and, if necessary, activated with the addition.
Marble is a non-foliated, granular metamorphic rock. That is formed by the metamorphism of limestone and dolostone. In the global market Marble is one of the seven natural stones have a massive demand.
The term Barytes is derived from the Greek baros meaning heavy. Barite is found in the southern parts of India.
Barytes (or barite) is a naturally occurring mineral form of barium sulphate. It is extracted by both surface and underground mining.
Silicon and oxygen are the earth's two most abundant elements and together they make silica, one of the earth's three most common rock forming minerals.Silica occurs in three main crystalline forms.Silica is the major ingredient in virtually all types of glass.
Calcite is a calcium carbonate mineral (minerals containing CO3) that is usually white. It is one of the most important minerals in the world and is extremely common. It can be found in the three main types of rocks(sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks)
Quartz (Silica SiO2) is the most common mineral in the Earths crust. Quartz is found in sandstones, pegmatites granites, and other igneous rocks. It forms veins in the cracks of rocks.It forms veins in the cracks of rocks.
