Main uses of jadeite block ore
Fluorite has a wide range of uses. With the progress of science and technology, its application prospects are increasingly broad. At present, it is mainly used as the raw material for the production of cryolite for aluminum smelting flux in the metallurgical industry, the raw material for the production of hydrofluoric acid, various hydrofluorinates and refrigerant Freon in the chemical industry, the decorative material in the building materials industry, and the light industry, optics, sculpture and national defense industry. Therefore, according to the use requirements, there are four main series of fluorite products in China, namely fluorite lump ore, fluorite (fluorite) concentrate, fluorite powder ore and optical and carved fluorite.
Fluorite is also called fluorite. A common mineral in nature can coexist with many other minerals. It is produced in many parts of the world and has five effective varieties. The main component of equiaxed crystal system is calcium fluoride (CaF ₂). The crystal is octahedron and cube. The crystal is glassy, colorful and brittle, with Mohs hardness of 4 and melting point of 1360 ℃, and has the property of complete cleavage. Some samples can emit light under friction, heating, ultraviolet radiation, etc.
