Zeolites


Zeolites Definition

In geology, zeolites are a group of hydro-alumino-silicate minerals that are compositionally analogous to the feldspars. Zeolites typically comprise sodium (Na), calcium (Ca), or potassium (K) as chief metals. And zeolites also tend to develop within basalt cavities, lake sediments, oceanic sediments, and volcanic tuff.

Modern Economical uses of the Zeolites

Modernly, zeolites are mined and processed for use as water softeners or desiccants.
