Mineralogy Database Organize Your Family History - Stay focused and happy while exploring your roots Industrial mineral Industrial minerals are geological materials which are mined for their commercial value, which are not fuel (fuel minerals or mineral fuels) and are not sources of metals (metallic minerals). They are used in their natural state or after beneficiation either as raw materials or as additives in a wide range of applications. Examples and applications[edit] Typical examples of industrial rocks and minerals are limestone, clays, sand, gravel, diatomite, kaolin, bentonite, silica, barite, gypsum, and talc. In some cases, even organic materials (peat) and industrial products or by-products (cement, slag, silica fume) are categorized under industrial minerals, as well as metallic compounds mainly utilized in nonmetallic form (as an example most of the titanium is utilized as an oxide TiO2 rather than Ti metal). In some cases, organic substances (such as peat) are categorized as industrial minerals. List of industrial minerals[edit] See also[edit] External links[edit]

Ilmenite Crystal structure of ilmenite Ilmenite is a weakly magnetic titanium-iron oxide mineral which is iron-black or steel-gray. It is a crystalline iron titanium oxide (FeTiO 3). It crystallizes in the trigonal system. The ilmenite crystal structure is an ordered derivative of the corundum structure; in corundum all cations are identical but in ilmenite Fe2+ and Ti4+ ions occupy alternating layers perpendicular to the trigonal c axis. Distinguishing features[edit] Ilmenite is commonly recognized in altered igneous rocks by the presence of a white alteration product, the pseudo-mineral leucoxene. In reflected light it may be distinguished from magnetite by more pronounced reflection pleochroism and a brown-pink tinge. Ilmenite is weakly magnetic, with a weak response to a hand magnet. Mineral chemistry[edit] Ilmenite from Froland, Aust-Agder, Norway; 4.1 x 4.1 x 3.8 cm At higher temperatures it has been demonstrated there is a complete solid solution between ilmenite and hematite.

How and Why Do Crystal Grids Work? - Ethan Lazzerini Have you wondered how and why do crystal grids work? How is it different from using a single crystal or carrying a group of stones? This introduction to crystal grids will reveal all. Crystal grids are usually an arrangement of crystals, charged with intention in a geometric pattern. They can be created for many purposes. They can be used for healing, protection, love or to manifest something in your life. Quartz Crystals amplify and direct energies within many crystal grids Generally, when you create a crystal grid, you use more than one type of crystal. I am sometimes asked why then not just carry a group of crystals with you? What gives crystal grids so much power and effectiveness for so many people is that they combine the energy of so many different things. Many crystals have a geometric crystalline structure or form. I carefully choose the crystals in my grids that have the properties I need. Crystal grids use a variety of crystal energies towards a desired outcome. With gratitude,
