Fluorite is an important industrial mineral. The most common use is as a flux in producing steel. Another important use is in making hydrofluoric acid, which is used in pottery, optics, and plastics. Fluorite is also used in making opalescent glass and in enameling cookware.
Bravo! TOO COOL. I think I'd vote this pics some of the best on the website so far! I had no idea they mined the stuff so far from the border. You mentioned that church. I have longed to know what it looked like up close and on the inside. Everytime I see that church I think it looks like it was setup for a Clint Eastwood movie - maybe the Good the Bad and the Ugly or something like that. I can just imagine John Wayne and Clint Eastwood riding up to it. If you have any pics of the church, please post.
