A Useful Mineral.
Fluorspar , one of the lesser
minerals and one of whioh many
people have probably nsver heard ,
has coma to occupy a comparative
ly important place in every dsy
affairs. It is used in the manu
facture of glass , of enameled and
sanitary ware , in refining anti
mony and lead , in the production
of aluminum , and as a flux in blast
furnaces and in the manufacture
of steel in basic open-hearth fur
naces. The production of open-
hearth steel 'alone in 1910 was
over 15,000,000 long tons. The
production of fluorspar , according
to Ernest F. Burchard , of the
United States Geological Survey ,
in a report on flourspar and cryo
lite 'just issued , increased from
18,450 short tons in 1900 , valued
at § 94,500 , to 69,427 tons in 1910 ,
valued at § 430,196. The deposits
which have been exploited are in
Arizona , New Mexico , Colorado ,
Illinois , Kentucky , Tennessee , and
New Hampshire. Illinois is much
the heaviest producer.
Cryolite is one of the compara-
aively few useful minerals which
has not yet been discovered in
commercial deposits in the United
Statesat least not in deposits
such as can compete with those
furnishing tlje imported product.
In fact , there is but one important
known deposit in the world , name
ly ; at Ivigtut , an Eskimo hamlet
on the southern coast of Green
land. Even this deposit is only
about three acres in extent. Cryp
lite is used principally in the
manufacture of opaque glass , for
enameling of iron ware , in the
metallurgy of aluminum , and as a
flux in the manufacture of white
Portland cemeut.
