The sedimentary metasomatic quartzites of Antonovsky deposits (Western Siberia) almost completely consist of high-density α-quartz micrograins. The grain purity is conditioned by self-purification of quartz microgranules in the process of lithification. The work proposes an effective aeromechanical technology for deep purification of quartz microgranules by applying high-temperature chemical exposure to produce commercial raw quartz.
