from the pacer mineral site

 

"In our deposit the predominant mineral is muscovite mica which has been compressed together with several other minerals. In the deposit you will find varying quantities of quartz, magnetite, garnets, biotite mica and soda feldspar."

 

also from them   "Silver Muscovite & Black Biotite Mica"  this stuff sinters at 1800, both micas

 

i imagine the black stuff is biotite  im going to try and cull the stuff with a magnet....now to find a big ol' magnet

 

i googled it but couldn't find a melt temp obviously below cone 04

 

how bad are the micas and iron going to look in wood fire
