Bishofit, its benefits and applications have been known for a long time. This "natural healer" was used for baths, compresses, solutions and rubbing. But what is it, know, alas, not many.
Bishofit is a natural mineral, consisting of granular-crystalline salts. Mineral is easily soluble, mostly consisting of magnesium chloride. That is why bischofite baths are so popular, the indications and contraindications of which can be studied not only at expensive resorts, but also at home.
Deposits of this mineral can be monomineral, that is, pure and with impurities of iodine, molybdenum, iron and manganese. Pure bischofite slightly yellowish, with impurities of salt can be from transparent to brown.
Who discovered the mineral and how it is mined
For the first time, the German scientist Gustav Bischoff drew attention to the deposits of a strange mineral in 1877.Subsequently, the mineral was named after him. For a long time, natural bischofite salts were considered very rare, but from 1930 to 1960, 3 large deposits were discovered. All of them were located on the territory of the USSR.Today, one of them( the largest) belongs to Russia and is located in the Volgograd region. The second( the oldest and deepest) should be found on the territory of Ukraine, in the Poltava region. And the third belongs to Turkmenistan. In Germany, useful polymers are mined in Stasfur. But, unlike our deposits, where the concentration of salts reaches 95%, there the deposit is not clean, its admixture in the rock is no more than 50%.
Obtain bischofite when drilling wells. Use the method of underground dissolution of artesian water. The resulting solution retains all the properties of the mineral, which is why its further use for medical procedures is considered optimal.
