Description: A dusty commodity commonly used in glass-making and in various branches of metallurgy and the manufacture of Hydrofluoric Acid. In some instances contact with salt water may be detrimental and prevent the material being used for its intended purpose, but on the other hand such damaged fluorspar should have a value in other directions. Damage by fresh water causes little loss in value except that some users may object to the increased moisture content, but this may be reduced by drying. Is subject to natural loss due to seepage of contents, particularly if not packed in small double bags. It is usually shipped in powder form, but if shipped in bulk, it may become powdery with resultant loss.
