Man Made Minerals

Man Made Minerals

Minerals created in a labratory.



Silicon Carbide
Silicon Carbide is also known as carborundum. Silicon carbide (SiC) is a ceramic compound of silicon and carbon. It occurs in nature as the extremely rare mineral moissanite, only having been found in minute quantities in certain types of meteorite and in corundum deposits and kimberlite. Virtually all of the silicon carbide sold in the world, including moissanite jewels, is synthetic. Silicon carbide is a semiconductor. It is used in many applications, from LEDs, to lapidary, to the grip tape on skateboards, and in high performance brake dics. Collectors are attracted to this mineral for its attractive appearance.

Aluminum Sulfate
Aluminum Sulfate will dissolve in water. Keep your specimen in a dry location or sealed in a plastic bag.This specimen was created in the laboratory in Poland. The process results in beautiful colors. It is a unique man-made mineral to add to your collection.

Silicon
What makes computer technology possible? Silicon!Silicon does not exist in its pure form on earth, it must be refined from sand (SiO2). Then Silicon crystals are grown from a seed crystal in the lab, where it is heated to over 2,700 degrees fahrenheit.

Labratory Grown Quartz
Grown in the U.S.The ends of the crystals will be chipped, because they must be broken off the wall of the pressurized chamber in order to be removed after they are grown. They are large sized and perfectly clear. #Q-284 Laboratory Grown Quartz Crystal. 1"" wide, 8"" long, and 1/2"" thick. Weight 5.5 - 5.6oz.
