Clay & Glaze Chemicals / M - P / Petalite (55# bag)

Petalite (55# bag)

Petalite is a lithium aluminium silicate.

  • Petalite is a lithium aluminum silicate mineral (a lithium feldspar). 
  • It is commonly used in clay bodies.
  • It is valuable because it provides an insoluble source of lithium (lithium carbonate is soluble) and has the highest Li2O:Al2O3 ratio of any natural mineral.
  • Lithium is a strong alkaline flux and is effective over all temperature ranges.
  • It imparts lower expansion and gives unique color response to copper and cobalt in glazes.
