Feldspar

The feldspar gives its name to an important group of minerals that make up as much as 60 % of earth’s crust as a result of a process of crystallization of the magma. They can be of different types: potassium, sodium, barium and calcium feldspar. Fusibility is its most important characteristic from the industrial point of view because it allows its use in ceramic porcelain fired at high temperature, in porous bodies, glazes, varnishes and vitrified products for the shock resistance and viscosity.
