Mica is a mineral name given to a group of minerals that are physically
and chemically similar. They are all silicate minerals, known as
sheet silicates because they form in distinct layers. Micas are
fairly light and relatively soft, and the sheets and flakes of mica
are flexible. Mica is heat-resistant and does not conduct
electricity. There are 37 different mica minerals. The most common
include: clear muscovite, brown phlogopite, black biotite and
sericite.From processing technic, it can be divided into dry ground
mica and wet ground mica.
Muscovite is the most common mineral of the mica family. It is an
important rock-forming mineral present in igneous, metamorphic, and
sedimentary rocks. It is also the most widely used mica.
Not only transparent and nearly colorless, most have a slight
brown, yellow, green, or rose-color tint.
Luster: Pearly to vitreous
Usually in large crystal with a pseudohexagonal outline
