Abrasive Corondum Market: Overview
Abrasive corondum is defined as a crystalline form of aluminum oxide (Al2O3) that typically contains traces of iron, titanium, vanadium, and chromium. It is a rock-forming mineral. Abrasive Corondum is a naturally transparent material. Abrasive corundrum reflects different colors if it contains impurities. These impurities arise as a result of the presence of transition metals in the crystal structure of corundum. Corundum has two primary gem varieties: ruby and sapphire. Rubies are red due to the presence of chromium, while sapphires exhibit a range of colors depending upon the element present. Corondum is commonly used as an abrasive on sandpaper, large machines which are used in machining metals, plastics, and wood. An emery is a mix of corundum and other substances, and the mix is less abrasive, with average Mohs hardness of 8.0. Abrasive corundrum occurs as a mineral in mica, gneiss, and some marbles in metamorphic terranes. Abrasive corundrum also occurs in low silica igneous syenite and nepheline syenite intrusives. Other occurrences are as masses adjacent to ultramafic intrusives, associated with lamprophyre dikes and as large crystals in pegmatites. Abrasive corundrum commonly occurs as a detrital mineral in stream and beach sands due to its hardness and resistance to weathering. The toughness of corundum is sensitive to surface roughness.
