Is Biotite Concentrate expensive?

By |2015-05-15T17:57:19-07:00May 15th, 2015|, |

No. Because it’s so highly concentrated, it costs pennies per day. Here are some examples: A 2oz bottle costs $19.95 and purifies up to 25 gallons of water. This comes to less than $0.80 per gallon. If you drink, say, half a gallon of water a day, the cost would be less than $0.40 per day. A 32oz bottle costs $109.95 and purifies up to 400 gallons of water. This would come to $0.28 per gallon. If you drink half a gallon of water a day, the cost would be $0.14 per day. Compare these prices to what it costs to buy a liter (considerably less than a gallon) of bottled water, very often costing from $0.99 to $1.49. Not only do you save a great deal of money, but by using the concentrate, you decrease the waste stream of plastic bottles by reusing just one bottle as many times as you need. So, using Biotite Concentrate saves resources, decreases pollution, keeps landfills from getting clogged with endless numbers of empty plastic bottles and costs remarkably less too. By the way, we recommend using either glass, ceramic or stainless steel for storing/carrying water, not plastic.

Can you explain a bit more about Biotite Concentrate?

By |2015-05-15T17:56:19-07:00May 15th, 2015|, |

Let’s start off with biotite, which is a type of mineral deposit. Other well known types are quartz, granite, feldspar, etc. Biotite has certain geological characteristics and was named in honor of a French physicist, Jean-Baptiste Biot. In Nature, biotite is in the form of very thin sheets of minerals and has a unique structure. Biotite deposits are found in many places around the globe but each deposit is different from all the others. The differences between them can be categorized by weight, mass, constituent profile, color, etc.
Research on the properties of biotite began in the 1960s and it was soon determined that it was jam packed with minerals. A process was invented to produce a super-concentrate, water purifying liquid from the biotite. The liquid was then filtered and diluted to make Biotite Concentrate (Liquid Crystal Minerals.) This process imitates Nature because when volcanic gases come in contact with water, they produce acidic compounds that, under the right temperature and pressure, in the presence of these biotite deposits, produce the same water purifying effects.
As a result of much research and investigation, this Biotite concentrate is now capable of sanitizing water, no matter how polluted it might be, no matter what the contaminants might be or where they may be. This is what makes Biotite such a revolutionary substance–it’s ability to clean water no matter what.

What products do you offer in the marketplace?

By |2018-01-17T13:48:22-08:00May 15th, 2015|, |

Currently, we offer three products, listed here:
A 2oz bottle of Biotite Liquid Crystal Minerals: This is a travel size that will fit into a pocket or purse. The travel size has a dropper included so no matter where you might be or the circumstances, you can put a few drops into any water that’s available and ensure that it’s clean and pure. The cost of a 2oz bottle is $19.95
A 32oz bottle of Biotite Liquid Crystal Minerals: This is the large, family size and costs less per ounce so saves money too. Some people like to have the 2oz dropper bottle that they refill from the 32oz size. And remember that in either case, although Biotite liquid is very shelf stable, it should be kept out of direct sunlight. The cost of a 32oz bottle is $109.95
The Mountain Spring Filtration System: This system has significant advantages over other purification systems. First of all, the design uses gravity to feed water through the filter network and therefore, it doesn’t need electricity to run. Usually, no matter how much a filter system costs, the far greater cost is in running it, either using electricity directly in order to operate or indirectly, because the system requires water pressure which can only be produced by a water pump that requires electricity to operate. Second, the Mountain Spring system filters down to 0.2 microns. A micron is technically defined as a billionth of a meter. As a result, the Mountain Spring system, when properly used, cleans down to an extremely small particle size. Third, the system uses several different technologies all in one unit because different contaminants sometimes require different approaches in filtering. The Mountain Spring Filtration System costs $199.95. Here are it’s key points:
1. Circular, free-standing unit
2. No electricity needed
3. Gravity fed
4. 0.2 micron ceramic filter
5. Multi-level natural earth filter system
6. 11.5” base X 21” tall
7. Living, oxygenated, fresh tasting mountain spring water
8. Easy to install, easy to use, easy to maintain, easy to clean
9. Plastic water bottles can now be eliminated as well as the landfill waste they create
10. 2 gallon capacity
11. Filter cartridge replacement very user-friendly

How long should I wait before drinking my treated water?

By |2018-01-17T13:48:22-08:00May 15th, 2015|, |

There are two factors at work here: first, although treating water with Biotite Concentrate will quickly reduce or completely eliminate any questionable substances in the water, there could be a cloudy opaqueness in the water or some other contamination that’s not readily apparent. If there is contamination, it will usually settle to the bottom. Second, the creation of the opaqueness and the settling do take some time, depending on 1) how many contaminants are in the water, and 2) how much of those contaminants the water has. Although the treated water will be decontaminated within a few minutes or less, it may have a cloudy look. Some people don’t care about this and just drink the water. Others prefer to wait until the cloud settles and in many cases, because a person is using the concentrate as well as our gravity-fed filter system, there’s no need to wait. However, all of these things are, to a large degree, determined by the initial quality of the water. If it is clean, or more or less so before being treated, then the clouding may not occur. However, there are many other instances where water is not clean even though it looks like it is. Even chlorine, which is found in most municipal water supplies around the country but is colorless, is, from the perspective of pure water, a contaminant, and Biotite Concentrate will clean that up too, changing the chlorine (a gas) into chloride salts (particulates) which will precipitate out and fall to the bottom.
Some people prefer to wait until the sediments completely settle and then pour off the clean water but if the water was initially of poor quality, then it’s going to take as much as 24 hours or even longer before the sediment falls to the bottom, at which point, you can decide what you’d like to do–pour off the rest of the water, use a filter system to eliminate the sediments, pour the sediments on houseplants or in the garden or drink them since they’re inert and harmless.

So, you’re saying that depending on how polluted the water, it’s drinkable almost immediately but if there’s a cloud, it could also take a couple days for the sediments to settle, is that right?

By |2015-05-15T17:52:49-07:00May 15th, 2015|, |

That’s right. Although the water is cleaned immediately, and you can drink it, the cloudiness, if it occurs, may not settle for a longer time. In fact, Biotite Concentrate can be used as a test for the purity of water. If you follow label directions and see no sediments occur, then you know the water you’re using is very clean. And the opposite is true too. If there’s a huge cloud in the water and it takes a long time to settle, then the water was filled with contaminants. We recently ran this test on a high quality spring water that is well known for it’s superior quality, even though over 25 years ago, the EPA stated that there was no longer any source of completely pure water in the continental US. We added an appropriate amount of Biotite Concentrate to this spring water, which came to us in a sealed glass bottle. 24 hours later there were bits of rusty sediment on the floor of the container. We haven’t had the sediment analyzed but this test suggests that even spring water can be contaminated.

The label says, “treats up to…..” Why isn’t it more specific?

By |2018-01-17T13:48:22-08:00May 15th, 2015|, |

Again, this depends on the purity of the water before treatment. Here are a couple examples: if a person uses tap water which has fluoride and chlorine and maybe even ammonia (another water treatment), along with several other things that might be in the water, the use of Biotite Concentrate will clean the water but most likely, a cloud will form and it may take overnight (or longer) to settle. In another example, a household may have a GAC (granular activated carbon) filter system or a de-ionization module, a reverse osmosis unit or a purification system that uses one or more technologies such as UV or ozonation. Biotite Concentrate can certainly be used on any type of water but if the water was initially cleaner than say, raw river or tap water, the concentrate might not produce much of a cloud or any cloud. Should this be the case, it’s entirely possible that only a very small amount of treatment is needed. Since we can’t predict each user’s water quality, the label gives a range of “up to” a certain amount. In some cases, a good deal less than the amount on the label recommendations is all that’s required and the only way to find out how much anyone needs is to simply experiment with different amounts until each individual discovers what works for their own situation.

What else can Biotite Concentrate be used for?

By |2015-05-15T17:51:52-07:00May 15th, 2015|, |

Here’s a brief list:
As a soak/wash for produce that’s not organically grown.
As an additive to hot tubs, jacuzzi’s, whirlpools, spas, etc., because it’s completely natural, less harmful to the environment than chemicals and lasts up to eight months between uses.
As an additive to a bath because, essentially, the same compounds that are found in mineral baths and spas in Europe and many other places, are the ones in Biotite Concentrate so you can have an honest-to-goodness mineral spa right in your own bathtub, and at a tiny fraction of the usual cost.
As a replacement for chemicals that are ordinarily used for cleaning, for example, contact lens solutions or washing the kitchen countertops.
At a dilution level determined through experimentation, as a spray for houseplants or in the garden.
Biotite Concentrate can also be diluted at the rate of 1000:1 for agricultural purposes because it improves the moisture characteristics of soil. Add it to the water, stir or agitate, then water your plants.
As a foliar spray for orchards, herbs or flowers.

By what process does Biotite Concentrate clean pollutants?

By |2015-05-15T17:50:41-07:00May 15th, 2015|, |

It’s essentially the same process that attracts the south pole of one magnet to the north pole of another magnet. If you bring them close together, they instantly stick to each other. But in the case of Biotite Concentrate, the positively charged pollutants get so “stuck” to the negatively charged concentrate that they can’t be unstuck after that. They’ve been transformed into other compounds (the technical term would be “salts”) that are now harmless. The bonding that occurs cannot be undone. And along with this is the fact that these new salts seem to be attractive to plants, either in the house or garden. We’re doing research in this area but we hypothesize that these salts can be recycled by plants and turned into nutrition, not only for the plants but for the soil as well.
In addition, this cleansing process is seen in nature, but because of the increased amount of pollutants in our biosphere, we need a water technology that emulates nature to help restore our water back to purity at a rate which keeps up with this increased pollution.
