Future Market Insights
Coalingite is a brown colored carbonate mineral; it is also known as carbonate mineral coalingite. It occurs in bronze brown, light brown and reddish brown in color. Colingnite has a resinous luster, and its hardness varies between the hardness of talc and gypsum.It is associated with other minerals such as antigorite, artinite, brucite, calcite, chromite, chrysotile, hydromagnesite, hydrotalcite-pyroaurite, lizardite, magnetite, uvarovite.Coalingite is developed from brucite which is rich in iron, in the surface weathering zone of a serpentinite near Coalinga, California, USA. It is formed after collection in thin veinlets in serpentinite, from a layered ultramafic complex known as Muskox Intrusive found in Canada. The name coalingite was proposed because of the occurrence of this mineral nearby Coalinga, California. It is also said that many ferro-brucites, which are inadequately described in the literature, can be either coalingite or coalingite-rich mixtures. Chemically, coalingite mineral is a compound of 5 elements- carbon, hydrogen, iron, magnesium and oxygen. It is soft and it occurs at a depth of 20ft to 30ft in 0.1 mm to 0.2 mm thickness.
Coalingite Market: Market Dynamics
Coalingite mineral is a type of carbonate minerals which are the most abundant mineral in the earth’s crust. They can be of multiple uses in the chemical industry because of their solubility in the hydrochloric acid. Carbonate minerals are the chemical components of igneous rocks which make them useful for modern construction applications. Coalingite can also be used as an ore mineral for the extraction of other carbonates and silicates. The sub-metallic appearance of coalingite creates an opportunity for its various applications which other metals possess. The rare occurrence of coalingite makes it a very expensive substance to be used for manufacturing of commercial products. Moreover, it is not a radioactive mineral, which further limits the scope of its applications. Coalingite mineral is kept as a visitor attraction in National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. in the USA. Coalingite mineral is auctioned at high prices from its quarries because of its rare occurrence. It is a supergene mineral, in some cases, it is also produced because of the interaction of brucite-bearing kimberlite and also by underground water circulating through an oblique or a vertical fault zone. Its occurrence as small reddish-brown platelets i.e. up to 0.2 mm in size makes it a useful mineral for fine construction purposes.
Coalingite Market: Market Segmentation
The global coalingite market can be segmented on the basis of the location of its quarries:
Coalingite Market: Segmentation Overview
From the USA, the coalingite mineral can be extracted from almost 55 km northwest of Coalinga, Frenso Co., California. It can also be extracted from the Rockville quarry of Rockville, Montgomery Co., of Maryland. Other sources for extraction of coalingite mineral are Cedar Hill quarry, Lancaster Co., of Pennsylvania. From Canada, the coalingite mineral can be extracted from the Muskox intrusion of the coppermine river area, which is in the northwest territory of Canada. Coalingite can also be extracted from Hagdale, Unst in Shetland Islands of Scotland. In Europe, the coalingite mineral is also extracted from Montjovet and Piedmont of Italy. Coalingite is also found in the lower Tagil massif of the Ural mountain of Russia. It is also found at Mashiki at Kumamoto prefecture in Japan. In Asia Pacific region, the coalingite mineral is found at Woodsreef, Barraba in New South Wales of Australia.
Coalingite Market: Regional Outlook
The global coalingite market geographically is segmented as North America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific excluding Japan, Japan, and Middle East & Africa. North America holds a significant share of coalingite market because of its occurrence near California. Furthermore, the increase in R & D activities related to metals and mineral processing, wherein coalingite is a new mineral, aids in boosting the growth of coalingite market in the region. The market in the APEJ region is more inclined towards growing demand for coalingite because of its rare availability.
