Cordierite typically occurs in contact or regional metamorphism of argillaceous rocks. It is especially common in hornfels produced by contact metamorphism of pelitic rocks. Two common metamorphic mineral assemblages include sillimanite-cordierite-spinel and cordierite-spinel-plagioclase-orthopyroxene. Other associated minerals include garnet and anthophyllite.
Jaw crusher for Cordierite crushing: Jaw Crusher is widely used in mining, building materials production line, chemical industry, metallurgy and so on. The Jaw Crusher is suitable for primary and secondary crushing all kinds of mineral ores and rocks with compressive strength less than 320 MPa.

Our Cordierite Stone Crusher Machine are used to process quartz , limestone , basalt, chrome , dolomite, feldspar, fluorite, kaolin ore, marble , granite , iron ore ,copper ore , sandstone, silica , gold ore , silver ore , lead ore .
As the transparent variety iolite, it is often used as a gemstone. The name “iolite” comes from the Greek word for violet. Another old name is dichroite, a Greek word meaning “two-colored rock”, a reference to cordierite’s strong pleochroism. It has also been called “water-sapphire” and “Vikings’ Compass” because of its ability to determine the direction of the sun on overcast days, the Vikings having used it for this purpose.Cordierite Mineral Processing Plant including Cordierite Crusher Machine, Cordierite Grinding Mill Plant, vibrating feeder,vibrating screen,conveyor belt mining machines.
