MICA Muscovite

MICA Muscovite MICA Muscovite is an insulator. The layers are stacked together via van der Waals interactions and can be exfoliated into thin 2D layers. Please note that we also sell MICA Phlogopite. To buy MICA Muscovite crystals please click here.

The natural crystals have a typical rectangular shape of ~2.5cm. More information about the MICA Muscovite crystals we sell can be found below.
