WHAT IS DIATOMACEOUS EARTH- FOSSIL SHELL FLOUR (AMORPHOUS NON-CRYSTALLINE SILICON DIOXIDE)?
Here at Fossilpower we supply 100% pure Diatomaceous Earth, mined from fresh water lake deposits. Which is composed of the skeletal remains of millions of fossilized microscopic diatoms that once flourished as a form of golden brown aquatic algae or plankton that lived lakes as a food source for all kinds of aquatic creatures. As far back as the beginning of the Cenozoic Era some 65 million years ago, diatoms have existed and contributed to the buildup of sediment on the ocean and lake floors. Fossilizing over eons of time into soft powdery rock many feet thick, geological forces pushed these deposits up to the Earth's surface. Today, the deposits of Fossil Shell Flour that are mined and milled into a whitish powder are primarily from diatoms that lived in lakes which evolved mostly in the Miocene Epoch or younger time periods roughly 25 million years ago.
This ancient substance is truly a modern day natural treasure-a safer and simple organic solution to our everyday home and garden needs.
Food grade Diatomaceous Earth can be safely used in the home and garden around children and pets.
