Old – New Comparison- As for example, New Jersey’s Greensand is a sandy sedimentary rock composed of glauconite, quartz and carbonates and phosphates with grain size measuring between 64 microns and 2 millimeters. The glauconite grains range from 1 millimeter to submicron. Super Greensand® is a silty-clayed sedimentary rock composed of glauconite, quartz, potassium felsdspar, muscovite, and minor quantities of biotite, goethite, titanium and manganese oxides, phosphate and rare-earth elements phosphate, with particle size measuring between 4 microns and 64 microns (micronized). The glauconite grains generally measures below to 3 microns. The mineral responsible for the green color of the two rocks is glauconite. Ordinary Greensand has twice more iron than Super Greensand® which gives it a darker greenish color. Super Greensand® Micronized has less iron but twice more potash than ordinary Greensand.
