Many high-end buildings now use unique and precious semi-precious stones in their decoration. Semi-precious stones play an important and indispensable position in high-end decoration.
The material of semi-precious stones is rare and unique, the texture is also natural and unique, the color is rich and full, and it is deeply loved by people. Applying it to the building can make the whole space appear high-end and luxurious, and it can also show the owner’s taste.
The semi-precious stone itself looks very luxurious, coupled with various innovative designs, such as the addition of lighting, slab stitching, waterjet mosaics, etc., add another layer of luxury to it.
The pasting process of semi-precious stones is very complicated. A large slab of pure natural semi-precious stones is assembled by hand by experienced craftsmen with fine layout, which can show the luxury of semi-precious stones.
Today I will introduce the fluorite
Fluorite (CaF2), also known as “fluorite”, is a colored mineral composed of calcium and fluorine under visible light and ultraviolet light. Fluorite naturally exists in all colors of the spectrum. It is one of the most colorful minerals in the mineral industry and enjoys the reputation of “the most colorful mineral in the world”.
Fluorite in nature often shows bright colors. Pure fluorite is colorless. Common colors are light green to dark green, blue, yellow, purple, gray, brown, etc.
Fluorite is widely used in metallurgy, building materials, and chemical industries. It is the main source of fluorine in industry and important raw material in the field of new materials.
Fluorite resources are unevenly distributed all over the world, with the most abundant resources in South Africa, Mexico, China, Mongolia, and other countries.
Most fluorite specimens have a single color, but a large part of fluorite gemstones have multiple colors, and these colors usually correspond to the shape of the crystals and are distributed in regional bands.
Some fluorites are very dark in color, especially in the large structure crystals that fluorite often forms. Part of the coloring of fluorite is caused by hydrocarbons, which can be removed from the sample by heating.
Fluorite is a very popular mineral, purple or violet is the classic color of fluorite, usually comparable to amethyst, mysterious, and noble.
Fluorite is also widely used in building materials and is a very popular semi-precious stone decorative sheet.
Semi-precious stone slab processing:
The semi-precious stone slab is composed of natural gems and minerals. In nature, these semi-precious minerals usually exist in the form of small pieces, while the entire semi-precious stone slab is hand-selected by the craftsman and stitched together one by one. , The plates produced are unique.
When cutting semi-precious stone slabs, you need to buy a special cutting disc. The edge polishing can be performed like other standard granites. The machine processing speed must be halved. For manual polishing, water polishing must be used, because our semi-precious stones are full of minerals.
When cleaning semi-precious stones, you must avoid using ammonia, bleach, or any other harsh cleaning agents. Mild or neutral cleaning agents are suitable for cleaning the surface of semi-precious stones. Avoid direct sunlight when storing the slabs and avoid placing the slabs at temperatures below 10°C (50°F) or higher than 40°C (104°F) under.
Generally, the distance between the support points of the semi-precious stone slab with a thickness of 30 mm should not exceed 60 cm, and the span between the plates should be reduced to the minimum to prevent damage and cracks. For the countertop, the distance between the fulcrums should not exceed 30 cm.
In the case of suspension, the support points must be firm. If the distance between the support points exceeds the maximum value mentioned above, additional support and fixation need to be strengthened.
