Zeolite clinoptilolite is currently only approved in the EU as animal feed additive, anti-caking and binding agent and is declared as E567 and E568. In the USA, zeolites are registered as safe for humans by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) under code (CFR 21) 182.2727.
Mineral Classification: Zeolite clinoptilolite belongs to a group of minerals known as zeolites. Zeolites are a class of hydrated aluminosilicate minerals characterized by a three-dimensional framework structure with open channels and cages.
Unique Crystal Structure: The crystal structure of zeolite clinoptilolite is known for its ordered, honeycomb-like arrangement of atoms. This structure provides its unique adsorption and ion-exchange properties.
Name Origin: The name "clinoptilolite" is derived from the Greek words "klino" (meaning inclined) and "ptilolite" (meaning feather), referring to its perfect cleavage, which often produces thin, feathery fragments when the mineral is broken.
Purification: Due to its ion-exchange capacity and adsorption properties, zeolite clinoptilolite is used to remove heavy metals, ammonia, and other contaminants from various sources.
Molecular Sieve: Zeolite clinoptilolite is often referred to as a "molecular sieve" due to its ability to selectively adsorb and separate molecules based on their size and charge.
100% Natural Form: While zeolite clinoptilolite occurs naturally, it can also be synthesized in laboratories for specific industrial and scientific applications. The natural form is typically more valuable due to its purity. Our Zeolite is 100% natural.
Geological Formation: Zeolite clinoptilolite typically forms in volcanic rocks and ash deposits. It is often associated with regions of volcanic activity, and its formation is closely linked to the alteration of volcanic glass and ash by hydrothermal processes.
Environmental Benefits: Beyond its applications, zeolite clinoptilolite is considered environmentally friendly. It is a natural, non-toxic material that can be used for pollution control, water purification, and reducing the environmental impact of various industries.
Geological Age: Zeolite clinoptilolite deposits can be quite ancient. Some deposits have geological ages dating back tens of millions of years.
Research and Study: This mineral has been the subject of extensive research and scientific study, particularly in the fields of geology, chemistry, materials science, and environmental science, due to its intriguing structural properties and versatility.
