Is fluorspar a metal? FAQ

Fluorspar is one of the nonmetallic minerals of moderate intrinsic value the demand for which, has increased greatly since the beginning of the European war, on account of its usefulness in the metallurgic, ceramic, and chemical industries, especially in the manufacture of open-hearth steel, enameled ware, and hydrofluoric acid. Fluorspar, or fluorite, chemically calcium fluoride (CaF2 ), consists of calcium and fluorine in the proportions of 51.1 to 48.9. The mineral is only slightly harder than calcite and consequently crushes easily, but it may be distinguished from calcite by its failure to effervesce with dilute hydrochloric acid. It crystallizes in the isometric system and is often found in cubical crystals. In color the spar ranges, according to purity, from a clear, colorless, or slightly bluish glasslike substance through various brilliant shades, and much of it is white and opaque. The mineral is usually very pure, some of the material marketed running 98 to 99 per cent of calcium fluoride. It commonly occurs in veins cutting both sedimentary and igneous rocks. 
Fluorspar, associated with other minerals, has a broad distribution geographically and a wide range geologically. The deposits thus far exploited in the United States are, however, confined to Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Tennessee.
The Arizona output has come mainly from the Castle Dome District, Yuma County, but during recent years there has been little production. Fluorspar has been reported also in Cochise, Maricopa, Mohave, Pima, JPinal, and Yavapai counties. In Colorado fluorspar has been mined in Boulder, Jefferson, and Custer counties, along the Front Range, and in Mineral County at Wagon Wheel Gap, and it occurs in many other counties. The chief deposits in Illinois and Kentucky occur in adjoining portions of the two States, Hardin and Pope counties in Illinois being separated from the Kentucky counties, Crittenden, Livingston, and Caldwell, by Ohio River. The great size and the purity of the fluorspar deposits of the Illinois-Kentucky district indicate that for many years they will continue the main source of domestic production. Prospecting with favorable results has been reported from Mercer County, in central Kentucky.
Other Kentucky counties in which fluorspar is reported are Fayette, Jessamine, Trigg, and Woodford. The deposit thus far developed in New Hampshire is near Westmoreland, Cheshire County. In New Mexico fluorspar has been mined from several veins 10 miles northeast of Deming, Luna County, and in the Burro Mountain district, Grant County, and is reported also in Bernalillo, Sandoval, and Socorro counties. The Tennessee production has come from Smith, Trousdale, and Wilson counties, and fluorspar is reported to occur in Carter County. A possible addition to the list of producing States is California, as fluorspar has been reported in Inyo, Los Angeles, Mono, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties. Fluorspar is reported to have been separated in the concentration of lead and zinc ores in Albemarle County, Va.; of gold tellurides at Cripple Creek, Colo., and at a number of localities in other States in quantities too small for use at present. Practically, wherever it has been mined, fluorspar occurs as a vein material, although under widely different conditions. In the Kentucky-Illinois district it is the chief mineral of value in the veins, lead and zinc being of secondary importance and, in many places, not valuable even as by-products, but in the Castle Dome district of Arizona jig concentrates of fluorspar have been made incidentally to concentrating the lead-silver ores. Some lump spar has also been saved in this district. In 1916 a small tonnage of spar was reported to have been mined, but not shipped, in Ferry County, Wash. In England fluorspar occurs abundantly in the Carboniferous limestone and associated shale, limestone, and sandstone of the Yoredale- group, where it is found as the gangue of metalliferous veins. It is usually but not invariably associated with calcite, quartz, and barytes. The principal producing localities are in Durham and Derbyshire. A large proportion of the fluorspar produced in England has been obtained by screening from waste dumps of old lead mines, but it is reported that these sources of supply are approaching exhaustion. 1

What is fluorspar for?

Fluorspar Statistics and Information
Fluorspar is used directly or indirectly to manufacture products such as aluminum, gasoline, insulating foams, refrigerants, steel, and uranium fuel.   Byproduct fluorosilicic acid production from some phosphoric acid producers supplements fluorspar as a domestic source of fluorine, but is not included in fluorspar production or consumption calculations. more information
