Explore Fluorine Occurs, Facts Lie, and more!

FLUORIDE, LEAD, ARSENIC... IN OUR WATER... fluosilicates (such as hydrofluosilicic acid); the most commonly used fluoride substances: Fluosilicates, by-products of the phosphate fertilizer industry. In the manufacture of this kind of fertilizer, phosphorus is obtained from phosphate rock, which has to be broken down with sulfuric acid.(1) Fluorine occurs naturally in combination with the phosphates.(2) In these two facts lie the keys to the presence of lead in the fluosilicates.

45+ Extremely Beautiful Minerals And Stones

”Mineral” is not the first thing to come to mind when you hear the word “beauty,” and that‘s a pity because they look so, so pretty. This selection of some of the most beautiful minerals and stones in the world will be a feast for your eyes. A mineral is a “naturally occurring substance that is …

Hereford (/ˈhərfərd/ HUR-furd[3]) is a city in and county seat of Deaf Smith County, Texas, United States. The population was 15,370 at the 2010 census. It is the only incorporated Hereford in the country. Hereford's local water supply contains an unusually high level of naturally occurring fluorine. Because fluoride is used to protect against tooth decay, Hereford earned the title "The Town Without a Toothache".

TOPAZ Ex 28:19, 39:12, Ezek 28:13, Job 28:19, Rev 21:20 The topaz of today is a mineral that is composed of aluminum, silicon, oxygen, and fluorine. It occurs in many colors, including deep golden-orange, yellow, brownish-yellow, pink, red, and various shades of blue. It may also be colorless. Topaz comes from the Greek word topazion, named for the island, Topazios, located in the Red Sea off the coast of Egypt. The gemstone which was mined on this island was actually the peridot…

Fluorapatite as a naturally occurring impurity in apatite generates hyrodrogen fluoride as a byproduct during the production of phosphoric acid, as apatite is digested by sulfuric acid. The hydrogen fluoride byproduct is now one of the industrial sources of hydrofluoric acid, which in turn is used as a starting reagent for synthesis of a range of important industrial and pharmaceutical fluorine compounds.

THE SIGN: AQUARIUS The Stone: Fluorite, Alternate Stones: Aquamarine, falcon’s eye, and turquoise Fluorite is named after the chemical element it contains, fluorine. The mineral occurs in a wide variety of colors — purple or green, for starters — and "gets its name from the Latin fluere ('to flow') because of its low melting point."

Fluorine is a naturally-occurring, pale yellow-green gas with a sharp odor. It combines with metals to make fluorides such as sodium fluoride and calcium fluoride. This is heavily in the drinking water. I don't resonate with the tin and fluorine sections, but the chart has other information that could be helpful.

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in all water sources, even the oceans. It also occurs naturally in food, and in our bodies. The fluoride ion comes from the element fluorine.

How apathy blocks empathy. Good read. And the toxic chemical fluoride (not the naturally occurring element fluorine), in most toothpastes and pesticides, causes significantly more apathy.
