Fluorspar or fluorite is a mineral form of calcium fluoride (CaF2). This mineral comes under the halide minerals. It comes in very beautiful colours, both in visible light as well as under ultraviolet light. Fluorspar occurs as cubic, isometric crystals as well as cleavable masses.
Fluorspar is used industrially as a flux for smelting purposes. It is an essential component in the smelting operations of the ferrous metallurgical system. Fluorspar is added to the molten steel batch in the aggregate form to flux the steel and increase its fluidity.
This mineral is also used in the production of various glasses and enamels which are used for various purposes. Fluorspar is also used as a source of fluoride for manufacturing hydrofluoric acid. The expensive lenses used in microscopes and telescopes are also made of fluorides. In some cases, fluoride optics are also usable in far-ultraviolet and mid-infrared ranges.
There are various types of fluorspar used in the industrial belt. And, we at MinchemImpex offer you the best quality fluorspar in all its variations.
