Its chemical composition is variable in the detail, and we define its industrial quality. Including their terms Al2O3 / SiO2 and Fe2O3 content and allow your detailed commercial classification.

MYTHOLOGY: It was discovered in the early nineteenth century. There are numerous deposits of bauxite, mainly in tropical and subtropical regions, as well as in Europe. Bauxite, which is usually presented as a mixture of Gibbsite and is also known as boehmite, is the raw material from which alumina processing this aluminum is obtained.
