Zeolite – The Basics

Zeolite is a naturally occurring material found in many countries around the world, as well as Australia in Northern New South Wales.   It is very low in nutrients but contains some Potassium, a small amount of Calcium and is known to have a very high Cation Exchange Capacity (see Did You Know section below).

Basic Soil Properties

Soil is created from the erosion, weathering and disintegration of rocks such as Granite, Shale, Quartz and Limestone over millions of years.  The base rock is weathered by rain, sunlight, ice, organic acids (from plants decomposing that produce a weak acid called Humic acid), temperature (when the rock has the forces on it of expansion and contraction as the temperature changes), and other factors.
