Mullite rarely occurs as a mineral in nature. In fact, the word mullite is derived from the Isle of Mull off the English coast, where the only naturally occurring deposits of mullite have ever been found. Naturally occurring mullite is so rare because it is the result of extremely high temperatures that have come into contact with alumino-silicate minerals of just the right type.

A synthetic, fused (or calcined), crystalline aluminum silicate produced in electric arc furnaces from calcined or Bayer process alumina and silica. It has short prismatic crystals. It has low porosity, high resistance to slag attack, good stability in ceramic bonds, excellent volume stability and low shrinkage. It is also available as a spray-dried, sintered, or hollow microsphere product.
