Wikipedia says this about lithium:
Lithium is widely distributed on Earth,[18] however, it does not naturally occur in elemental form due to its high reactivity. Estimates for crustal content range from 20 to 70 ppm by weight.[12] In keeping with its name, lithium forms a minor part of igneous rocks, with the largest concentrations in granites. Granitic pegmatites also provide the greatest abundance of lithium-containing minerals, with spodumene and petalite being the most commercially viable mineral sources for the element.[12] A newer source for lithium is hectorite clay, the only active development of which is through Western Lithium Corp in the USA.

  1. Thanks for the kind words Sandy! It was fun to do. I’ll be back in in a couple of weeks. We’re syncing up to get a couple of people on board.

  2. Congratulations, guys, on your first podcast! MOST enjoyable! You all have great radio voices, and the show was well done!
    The first time I heard about the ‘water guy’ was in a movie ‘What the Bleep do We Know’. At the time, I realized Science (liek religion) can fall prey to the pseudo realms as well… a lot of New Age stuff with no experimental background or logistical evidence. Like how you can ‘wish’ your cancer away by thinking about it. I mean, c’mon! Let’s stick with reality here!
    Anyway! Fantastic show!
