M.Mamedov, S.Makhmudov, K.Panakhi, N.Abdullayeva
The present book examines the geologic conditions of forming of zeolite-bearing complexes of the central segment of the Mediterranean belt, classification of zeolite group minerals. On the base of studies and issued materials for last 160 years (1837-1997) the book gives a description of 17 types of zeolite group minerals of Azerbaijan, examines physic-chemical conditions of natural zeolites crystallization, characterizes the associate minerals, describes some fields of natural zeolites utilization in industry and economy.
There are data concerning the crystalline structure of thomsonite, gonnardite, laumontite (leonhardite) which had been carried out in Azerbaijan. The diagram of SiO2 and Al2O3 ration in zeolites of Azerbaijan in comparison with the theoretical composition is proposed.
