Industrial minerals 

Industrial minerals and rocks have diverse characteristics in terms of their nature, origin, and abundance as well as their industrial application, and economic value. There are metallic minerals such as bauxite, chromite, limonite, which are classified as industrial minerals frequently used in the industry as fusion-resistant materials. Industrial minerals and rocks are found in and derived from all igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks.
