Vermiculite

Vermiculite is the geological name given to a group of natural occurring minerals which are aluminium-iron-magnesium silicates that resembles mica in appearance. This mineral has been mined for many years in different parts of the world including South Africa and Kenya. Vermiculite is typically used for insulation and gardening.
 
This mineral has been and is still being used in many different industries. It is used in the agricultural, construction and industrial markets. Mines that mine vermiculite are generally service operations where the ore is separated from the various other minerals and classified into numerous basic particle sizes. When vermiculite comes in contact with heat it expands into worm-like pieces, which can be used for a variety of applications including gardening and insulation.
 
The reason that vermiculite is used for so many different applications in a variety of industries is due to all its beneficial properties. Vermiculite is inorganic, it has no known toxicity or fire hazard, has a high water holding capacity and low alkalinity. These are only some of the benefits this mineral has to offer. Apart from being used for insulation, vermiculite can also be used for the germination of seeds and potting compost. Vermiculite is the ideal product for many applications, but before using it for whatever application, check the packaging as some vermiculite may contain small amount of asbestos, which are not safe for our health.
