AZOMITE® is a uniquely natural material, mined in Central Utah, USA. For over seventy years, crop producers have used AZOMITE® to support plant growth and vitality. Typical assays reveal that the material contains a broad spectrum of over 70 minerals and trace elements. AZOMITE® requires no mixing. It is odorless, will not burn plants and will not restrict aeration or water penetration. AZOMITE® is not manufactured or chemically prepared. It is 100% natural and completely free from additives, synthetics or fillers.
AZOMITE® is listed by the prestigious Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in certified organic production.
Mineralogically, AZOMITE® can be described as a rhyolitic tuff breccia, which is a hard rock formation that formed from the dust of a volcano that erupted an estimated 30 million years ago. The multitude of trace minerals found in the deposit resulted from the vocanic ash merging with seawater to form a mineral composition completely unique to its location and circumstance. The registered trade name, AZOMITE®, represents the "A to Z of Minerals Including Trace Elements". Chemically, AZOMITE® is a hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicate (HSCAS) containing other minerals and trace elements which the National Research Council recognizes to be essential. HSCAS is listed in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (21 CFR 582.2729) as an anti-caking agent that is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA. After completing a series of manufacturing steps AZOMITE® is stored for bulk shipment or packaged in bags and palletized for distribution all over the world.
