Mineral Resource of the Month: Diatomite | EARTH Magazine

The largest known diatomite deposit in the world is located in Lompoc, Calif. In the United States, diatomite is produced by seven companies at 10 separate mining areas in California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. The filtration markets in the United States consumed approximately 67 percent of all domestically mined diatomite in 2011.

Diatomite and Diatomaceous Earth Geology

What is Diatomite? Diatomite is a friable lightcolored sedimentary rock that is mainly composed of the siliceous skeletal remains of diatoms. It is a very porous rock with a fine particle size and a low specific gravity. These properties make it useful as a filter media, an absorbent, and as a lightweight filler for rubber, paint, and plastics.

The diatomite excavation also has increased the phosphorus load by 20% and the nitrogen load by more than 90%. Thus, phosphate precipitation from mining effluents was encouraged, and may eventually save this lake area from unwanted Anabaena blooms. A Conservation Act for the Myvatn area was signed by the Icelandic President in 1974.
