India is the single largest source of mica in the world. Muscovite Mica is the best varitey avaliable from Rajasthan.

Mica is a dry sultry powder chemically inert, immune to climatic variations, non toxic, tough and water proof with excellent anti sticking property. Mica is highly responsive to the action of light, heat, and electrical energy.
