What Is the Average Cost of Mica Per Ounce/Gram/Ton? Average Mica Price?

Mica prices vary greatly depending on its grade. The average cost of mica is $12 per ton. The mica group represents several phyllosilicate minerals. The commercially important micas are muscovite and phlogopite. However, muscovite is the principal mica used by industry, owing mainly to its greater abundance and superior electrical properties. Both muscovite and phlogopite are used in sheet and ground forms. The value of mica lies in its unique physical properties. The crystalline structure of mica forms mineral layers that can be split into thin sheets that are flexible, elastic, transparent to opaque, lightweight and hydrophilic.
