The Mineral Cryolite Na3AlF6, Sodium Aluminum Fluoride As Mineral Specimens
Appearance:white needle crystal or powder
Melting point :1040℃
Boiling point :1272℃
Cryolite is a quite amazing high vibration crystal that inspires a deep connection to the higher realms and to Spirit.
It energizes the brain and creates a powerful mind-heart link! A dynamic stone for lightbody awakening, ascension and enlightenment.
It connects you with angels and with beings in the higher realms.
This stone has a delightful heart based vibration yet it is quite intense and may create deep spiritual growth.
It has a strong vibration within all of the chakras, and this flow of light will move throughout the body, and at the base chakra may stimulate kundalini activation.
Originally this stone was discovered in Greenland, and this was the only deposit of it in the world. It was used in that country as a flux for aluminum smelting and this has almost used up the deposit.
Fortunately for the metaphysical community other deposits of Cryolite have also been found in Canada, the United States and in Russia, so these stones are now more easily available.
This stone is white and has a low refractive index, which makes it almost seem to disappear when placed in water.
It contains aluminum, and it is used to make pesticides, and it is known to leave a toxic residue on the plants. So please take care with its use and make sure the pieces you use are sealed.
You may choose to use it inside a crystal bag if you are not sure if it is sealed properly. The energy will still work.
Store in shady and ventilated warehouse.Keep away from kindling and heat source.
Prevent from direct sunlight.Provide with package encapsulation.Deposit separately
from acids and avoid reserving mixedly.
In plastic coating woven bags or woven bags with plastic film inside, 40kgs, 50kgs,or 1000kgs net each, or as per requirement of clients.
Color is clear or white to yellowish, but can also be black or purple.
Luster is vitreous.
Transparency crystals are transparent to translucent.
Crystal System is monoclinic; 2/m
Crystal Habits are usually massive and as pseudo-cubic crystals, some with psuedo-octahedral truncations.
Cleavage is absent, but three parting directions produce what looks like a psuedo-cubic cleavage.
Fracture is uneven.
Hardness is 2.5 - 3
Specific Gravity is 2.95 (average)
Streak is white.
Other Characteristics: index of refraction is 1.338 which is close to the index of refraction of water. As a consequence, clear cryolite crystals or powdered cryolite will nearly disappear in water. Also there is no salty taste which is helpful in distinguishing cryolite from the mineral halite.
Associated Minerals include siderite, quartz, topaz, fluorite, chalcopyrite, galena, cassiterite, molybdenite, columbite and wolframite.
Notable Occurrences include Ivigtut area of Greenland and also at the foot of Pikes Peak at Creede, Colorado, USA, Mont Saint-Hilaire and Francon Quarry, Montreal, Quebec, Canada and at Miask, Russia.
Best Field Indicators are lack of salty taste, density, index of refraction, locality and crystal habit.
It's mainly used as an adjusting agent for electrolyte in aluminum smelting by fused salt electrolysis, also in ceramic glaze, catalyst and flux of nonferrous metal metallurgy etc.
Though smelting, casting, hot-rolling, cold-rolling, heat-treatment, finishing and other technology,the heavy melting aluminum and an appropriate quality of alloying elements is processed to light nonferrous metal material which has the characters of fine luster, good looking, light weight, poison less and selflessness, and it also has good properties of transmitting electric current and heat, processing and corrosion-resisting applicability.
