Diatomaceous Earth…What on Earth?

I’m fascinated by the National Calendar Days and actually try to create Facebook and Twitter posts tying them to something Photography related. Today, August 31st, is National Diatomaceous Earth Day. I can make this photography related! I can show you a picture of Diatomaceous Earth and then I can tell you what I learned about it – just in case you may not know ūüôā

Diatomaceous Earth occurs when organic portions of diatoms (single-celled plants) that have died fall to the bottom of bodies of water. Over time, these organic portions weather away leaving tiny porous and intricate diatom skeletons called opal frustules. Evidently these ‘frustules’ are known to be one of the strongest naturally occurring substances.

What is cool about Diatoms is that they are called the ‘Lungs of the Earth’ because they produce almost 3/4 of the world’s new oxygen supply. What I learned about Diatomaceous Earth is that how many uses this powdery substance has!

The most common use I found seems to be filtration of swimming pool water. It has natural insecticide properties as well so it is commonly used in the home and garden. It is used in make-up, pharmaceuticals, and it even the ‘flat’ in flat paint. And the list goes on. So Happy Diatomaceous Earth Day to everyone.
