Feldspars are found in many types of Sedimentary Rocks. Potash and soda occurs as essential constituents of granite, syenite and gneisses. However workable feldspar deposits found in pegmatite veins consisting mainly of feldspar, quartz-feldspar veins and also occur with mica pegmatites. Feldspars are aluminosilicates and their purity and fusibility makes them a useful raw material for many industrial applications. The group of minerals consists of Tectosilicates is called Feldspar.
Composition of Feldspars can be expresses in terms of three end terms named as,
Uses of Feldspar
- Feldspar is used as a Flux in Glass, Ceramic, Cement, Dental Porcelain, Porcelain Insulator and Welding Electrodes.
- And in many Manufacturing Industries in manufacturing products like Porcelain, Electrical insulators, Enamel Bricks, Insecticides, Lubricating cleaning Preparations, Foundry Facings and Wall Plaster.
- In earth sciences and archaeology, feldspars are used for K-Ar dating, argon-argon dating, and luminescence dating.
Composition of Feldspar
The chemical properties of Feldspar are

Feldspar offered by us is formed through crystallization of magma in intrusive igneous rocks as well as in different types of sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. Available in options of potash and soda, it finds use in ceramics for making of Chinaware, welding rod industry, manufacturing of glass pottery, in making of high class colourless glass. Further, it is also used in welding electrodes, as flux and in protecting molten metal from aerial oxidation as well as suitability as filter in latex and paint.
We are extremely popular in providing our clients with the best range of Feldspar Mineral to our clients. Non-toxic materials extended shelf life and extremely effective for years. This Feldspar Mineral is available in customized packets and is able to give best performance for years. This Feldspar Mineral occurs naturally and is free from all types of defects.
We provide finest quality feldspar mineral existing in the earth’s crust that practices about 60% of earthly rocks. Most of their deposits result in:
