Fluorite is also called fluorspar. Its main component is CaF2, which is the main source of fluorine(F)in industry. Metallurgical grade fluorite (60–85% CaF2) has traditionally been used as a flux to lower the melting point of raw materials in steel production to aid the removal of impurities, and later in the production of aluminium.

The process of fluorspar lumps is relatively simple. After the natural fluorite ore is exploited, they will be directly processed into the size required by customers through physical processing. Generally, the size range of fluorspar lumps is 10 - 80mm.

(1)Metallurgical industry

It is widely used as a flux in smelting iron, Iron alloy production and non-ferrous metal smelting. Fluorite can reduce the melting point of the slag to promote the flow of a good separation of the slag and metal desulphurization in the smelting process.

(2)Chemical industry

Another important use of fluorite is to produce hydrofluoric acid. It is the key raw materials to produce a variety of organic and inorganic fluoride and fluorine. Fluorite is also used to manufacture catalysts in the production of high-octane fuel oil, etc.

(3)Building Materials Industry

Fluorite is also widely used in glass, ceramics, cement and other building materials industries.

(4)Other Uses

Fluorite has dense structure, varied colorful. It can be used as carving material.

Transparent and colorless fluorite can be used to make special optical lenses.
