    Hello, first of all sorry if I am posting in the wrong section. Netherlean sianite? is a raw material that is involved in the process of glass making as I have heard from an audio. I need to write this down, but cannot find it anywhere. Maybe because I'm completely spelling it wrong... Could someone please help me identify this? Maybe it is more commonly used under a different name? Thank you for any help.

      I guess the last part is "cyanide". I think some cyanide salts are used in glass making (sodium, potassium, copper, calcium, etc)

      Thank you for your help! With your correction of the last word I think it might be ethylene cyanide. Thanks again!

      Glad I could help. I would never have guessed ethylene.

      Curiously, the only reason I opened the thread was that I suspected the title was meant to read Nepheline Syenite. Their extrusive equivalent is phonolite. The latter is often associated with carbonatite lavas. I foolishly turned down a possible opportunity to study the latter in the East African Rift valley. Hence my interest. But making glass with them - that stirs up memories of my time as a double glazing salesman.

      I suppose that formative experience must account for your well-deserved reputation for intellectual rigour and honesty…...
