The word “mica” is thought to come from the Latin word micare, which means “to glitter” (due to the brilliance appearance of this mineral). Human use of mica dates back all the way to prehistoric times. The earliest use of mica has been found in cave paintings created during the Upper Paleolithic period. Throughout the ages, mica has been used in fine powder form for various purposes, including decorative purposes. For example, the beautiful Padmanabhapuram palace in India, a majestic example of Kerala-style architecture, actually has colored mica windows! Also, the famous pyramid of the sun at Chichen-Itza in Mexico contains considerable amounts of mica! This mineral is also used for modern purposes today! For example, mica sheets are often used to provide structure for heating wire. Some toothpaste brands even use mica in a powdered form for their toothpaste! This lustrous example of star mica is a great find for any rock collector! Flaky in texture and shiny in appearance, this is bound to catch everyone’s attention at next week’s local rock collector’s meeting! Great for the classroom or the rock fan! Buy one today!

Please be aware that this is a natural mineral and as such each piece is one of a kind! The one you receive may not be exactly the same as the ones pictured but it will be similar.  Price is per each piece. They come in irregular shapes, sizes and weights.
