Japan is one of excellent localities in the world to study the occurrence and genesis of natural zeolites, because volcanic glass of varying composition that is the best raw material of zeolites occurs widely in volcaniclastic rocks of younger geologic ages. Zeolites originate from many kinds of precursor minerals, such as volcanic glass, impact glass, non… CONTINUE READING
