Paper Title:
Composition and Microstructure of a Natural Nano-Structure Mineral: Six-Ring Rock
  Abstract

Six-ring Rock is widely used as containers of water and additives to produce health care products. In this paper, the composition and microstructure of Six-ring Rock have been investigated by using scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectrometer, transmission electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction and other technologies. Results show that Six-ring Rock is composed of CaMg(CO3)2, SiO2 and KAlSi3O8. Fe atoms exist in CaMg(CO3)2 by replacing Mg atoms. Six-ring Rock shows nano-size lamellar and acerose microstructures on the surface, and nano-size monocrystals in the body. Six-ring Rock is a natural nano structure mineral.
