What is silicic earth/silicic acid?
From rock crystal to diatoms – it is all around us.
Rock crystal is an example of silicon dioxide in its most beautyful form
In combination with water, it is referred to as silicic acid. This is found in the structures of tiniest marine organisms, the diatoms, which already existed in the earth’s original ocean, the „Urmeer“, 80 millionen years ago. The skeletal structures of the dead diatoms settled on the ocean floor, accumulating to form huge deposits.
What makes silicon dioxide and silicic acid so special is its high binding capacity.
