Synthetic Cryolite is an uncommon mineral. It is a fluoride-containing mineral that EPA permits to be used as a pesticide. It was historically used as an ore of aluminium and later in the electrolytic processing of the aluminium-rich oxide ore bauxite (itself a combination of aluminium oxide minerals such as gibbsite, boehmite and diaspore).It is primarily used as a flux in the smelting or electrolytic production of aluminium and can be used to reduce the melting point of alumina.It is also used in the glass and enamel industries.
