Ulexite is a hydrous sodium calcium borate with formula of NaCaB5O6(OH)6.5H2O. In nature, ulexite is mostly fibrous. Ulexite is popularly called as TV rock as its natural fiber optic character transmits light along their lengths by internal reflection. The physical properties of ulexite is colorless or white triclinic crystal. Ulexite is a complex mineral containing chains of sodium, water, and hydroxide octahedra. In nature, ulexite can be found in evaporite deposits.
Ulexite is a source of boron compounds. It can be processed to extract boron, which is used in the production of various boron chemicals, including boric acid, borax, and boron oxide.
Glass and Ceramics
Boron compounds derived from ulexite, such as borax and boron oxide, are used as fluxes in glass and ceramic manufacturing. They help reduce the melting point of raw materials, improve glass clarity, and enhance the thermal resistance of ceramics.
Boron is an essential micronutrient for plant growth. Boron-containing compounds, often derived from ulexite, are used in agricultural fertilizers to correct boron deficiencies in soil and promote healthy crop development.
