The production methods of magnesium borate minerals can be divided into two by hydrothermal and thermal methods [13].
Synthesized magnesium borate minerals were characterized by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and differential thermal analysis and thermal gravimetry (DTA/TG).
At the end of the selected reaction times the solution was put in an incubator maintained at 40[degrees]C until the excess water evaporated and magnesium borate minerals were crystallized.
Insoluble impurities, including anhydrite, magnesite, hematite, borate minerals and clays, can sometimes make up as much as 50% of the rock, but are typically present at a much lower concentration.
Evaporite rocks at the Boulby mine have provided a suite of minerals, including some of the finest known examples of the borate minerals ericaite, boracite and hilgardite.
