Gypsum is an evaporite mineral most commonly found in layered sedimentary deposits in association with halite, anhydrite, sulfur, calcite, and dolomite. Gypsum (CaSO4.2H2O) is very similar to Anhydrite (CaSO4). The chemical difference is that gypsum contains two waters and anhydrite is without water. Gypsum is the most common sulfate mineral present in Earth’s crust.


Gypsum Talc is the softest mineral, demonstrated by its position at the bottom of Mohs’ Scale of Hardness with a relative hardness value of 1. it has a soapy, greasy feel. 

Minerals Empire provides quality Talc to it’s paint and ceramic industry’s customer in lumps as well as in different mesh sizes,


Limestone, Calcium carbonate or CaCO3, comprises more than 04% of the earth’s crust and is found throughout the world. Lauded among many industries for its use, calcium carbonate is a key player in the following industries such as plastic/rubber, cement, glass, steel, paper and construction.


Silica sand, also known as white sand, or industrial sand, is made up of two main elements: silica and oxygen. Specifically, silica sand is made up of silicon dioxide (SiO2). Both, washed and un-washed silica sand available are available at Minerals Empire.


Magnesite is a magnesium carbonate mineral with a chemical composition of MgCO3. It is named after the presence of magnesium in its composition. Magnesite is used to produce magnesium oxide (MgO), which serves as a refractory material for the steel industry and as a raw material for the chemical industry.


Soda Feldspar is generally a clean white mineral that sources sodium &  alumina along with some potassium & calcium. It is mainly consumed in factories that produce plate glass, ceramic tile, insulation, paints, plastics, pottery, container glass & other products. Most of these products play an important role in commercial & residential construction, and the demand for feldspar is supported by the health of the construction industry.


Bauxite is the primary ore of aluminum. Almost all of the aluminum that has ever been produced has been extracted from bauxite. Bauxite is aluminum-rich ore that is used for aluminum production (the metallurgical bauxites) and for production of refractory materials, chemicals or cements (the non-metallurgical bauxites). 


Himalayan salt is rock salt (halite) mined from the Punjab region of Pakistan. The salt, which often has a pinkish tint due to trace minerals, is primarily used as a food additive to replace refined table salt but is also used for cooking and food presentation, decorative lamps and spa treatments. These include common minerals like potassium and calcium, as well as lesser-known minerals like strontium and molybdenum.


Quartz is a chemical compound consisting of one part silicon and two parts oxygen. It is the most abundant mineral found at Earth’s surface, and its unique properties make it one of the most useful natural substances. Quartz sand is used in the production of container glass, flat plate glass, specialty glass, and fiberglass, besides that it is also used as a flux in the smelting of metals. And as a filler in the manufacture of rubber and paint.


Drilling Grade Barite is a special grade of Barite which includes some basic parameters i.e., density must be 4.10 or 4.20, water soluble alkaline earth metals much be less than 250gm/kg and must be in mesh size of 200. This Grade is used to increase the density of drilling mud, by all Petroleum related industries in order to maintain the abnormal pressure beneath the earth while drilling.


Barite is a mineral composed of barium sulfate (BaSO4). It’s name is in response to barite’s high specific gravity of 4.4, which is exceptional for a nonmetallic mineral. The high specific gravity of barite makes it suitable for a wide range of industrial, medical, and manufacturing uses. Because of it’s whiteness Barite is also used as a weighted filler for paper and as a pigment in paints industries.


Fluorspar is the most commonly used mineral mined from the Earth’s crust. Naturally, pure fluorspar (51.1% calcium & 48.9% fluorine) is colorless, but in earth, the many different impurities found in the mined mineral imbue it with a variety of wonderful colors, ranging from blue, green and purple, to pink, brown and black. The fluorspar we posses is used in a wide variety of chemical, metallurgical, and ceramic processes. 


Potash feldspars are often not as pure and white as soda spars. A feldspar is typically referred to as ‘potash’ if there is significantly more potassium than sodium (typically there will be 2-5% Na2O). If the amounts are closer to equal, they are termed potash-soda feldspars (or vice versa). Potash Feldspar is one of the most important materials for medium and high temperature ceramic glazes.


Manganese is a chemical element, designated by the chemical symbol “Mn”. It is found as a free element in nature (often in combination with iron) and could be found in many minerals. Manganese is the fourth most used metal in terms of tonnage. Manganese has numerous applications in our daily lives, particularly for alloy addition.


Iron ore is the main source of primary iron required for the global iron and steel industries. Iron ore mining methods vary by the type of ore being mined. There are four main types of iron ore deposits worked currently, depending on the mineralogy and geology of the ore deposits. These are magnetite, titanomagnetite, massive hematite and pisolite ironstone deposits. Pakistan is naturally rich in magnetite and hematite.
