DekorFlake mineral origin

DekorFlake is produced from Phlogopite and Muscovite Mica, their origins are as following:

Phlogopite is associated with metamorphosed limestone and ultrabasic rocks, particularly hydrothermal veins formed through metasomatism of magnesium-rich rocks as well as ultrabasic and carbonatite ring intrusions associated with ancient shield areas. LKAB Minerals' Phlogopite Mica is sourced from a major deposit in Finland.

Muscovite is a constituent of acid igneous rocks like granite, pegmatite or alaskite, some regionally metamorphosed rocks and clastic sedimentary rocks, ad is a product of alteration. Most commercial deposits are derived from pegmatites which contain 1-2% and rarely up to 10% muscovite. Mica is found in many regions of the world in the form of pegmatite rock and mica schist.

DekorFlake toxicology

Phlogopite and Muscovite Mica are both non-toxic natural minerals. For further information please download the Safety Data Sheets in the box on the right.
