The Feldspar group is a fairly large group with nearly 20 members recognized, but only nine are well known and common. Those few, however, make up the greatest percentage around %60 of minerals found in the Earth's crust.
Feldspar is an Alumna Silicate containing K, Na or Ca.
Industrially there are two main types of Feldspar:
One of them called Potash Feldspar (K-Spar) with K2O ranged from %7-13.
The other is Sodic Feldspar (Na-Spar) with Na2O ranged from %8-11.
Feldspar is mainly used in glass industries and ceramic, as a functional filler and extender in paints, plastics, and rubber industries, in porcelain industries and glazes.
