Ilmenite, also known as Manaccanite, is the titanium-iron oxide mineral with the idealized formula FeTiO3

Uses of Ilmenite
Ilmenite is the main source of titanium dioxide, which is used in paints, fabrics, plastics, paper, sunscreen, food and cosmetics.

We source Ilmenite from Asia and North Africa.


Barite is a mineral composed of barium sulfate (BaSO4). It receives its name from the Greek word "barys" which means "heavy."

Uses of Barite
Most barite produced is used as a weighting agent in drilling muds. These high-density muds are pumped down the drill stem, exit through the cutting bit and return to the surface between the drill stem and the wall of the well. We can supply Barite in Lumps or Powder forms.

We source Barite from Asia.

Rock Phosphate

Phosphorite or rock phosphate is a non-detrital sedimentary rock which contains high amounts of phosphate bearing minerals; finding its primary use in Fertilizers for Agriculture. Additionally, they are also used in animal feed supplements, food preservatives, anti-corrosion agents, cosmetics, fungicides, ceramics, water treatment and metallurgy

Rock’s Global Market & Reserves

Global rock phosphate demand is rising due to a growing world population and associated food demand, thereby increasing demand for phosphate fertilizer. Majority of global phosphate rock reserves are located in Morocco, including Western Sahara.

Bentonite is a kind of absorbent clay formed by breakdown of volcanic ash, used especially as a filler.

Uses of Bentonite
The most common use of bentonite is in drilling fluids. The bentonite in the flush fluid lubricates and cools the cutting tools while protecting against corrosion. The fine bentonite particles enter into the bore wall, swell and harden. Depending on the constitution of the ground structure, fine and coarse particles are needed. API 13A “Specification for Drilling Materials” precisely regulates the technical data for the bentonite in the drilling fluid.

We source Bentonite from South Asia region.


Granite is a light-colored igneous rock with grains large enough to be visible with the unaided eye.

Uses of Granite
In the modern era, Granite is used for making Sculpture, Memorials and for Building & Engineering purposes. Granite has been extensively used as a dimension stone and as flooring tiles in public and commercial buildings and monuments. Granite block is usually processed into slabs and after can be cut and shaped.

Basmati Rice

Basmati is a variety of long, slender grain aromatic rice which is traditionally from Indian Subcontinent. India supplies 65 percent of the overseas basmati rice market. Basmati rice has a typical pandan-like (Pandanus amaryllifolius leaf) flavour caused by the aroma compound 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline. Basmati grains contain about 0.09 ppm of this aromatic chemical compound naturally, a level that is about 12 times more than non-basmati rice varieties, giving basmati its distinctive spicy fragrance and flavour. Packing as per the buyer's requirement.

Sourced from South Asia and South East Asia.

Non-Basmati Rice

Any rice other than basmati rice is named as non- basmati rice. In the world it has been reported that there are 10000 varieties of rice and out of which the maximum number are in India.

Non- basmati rice comes in all kinds of different shapes and sizes. Some are long and slender, some are short and thick, some are like beads, and some may be round. They do not have both the aroma and post cooking elongation as of basmati rice. Packing as per the buyer's requirement.
