G-20 is a potassium/sodium/ calcium aluminum silicate used as a source of alumina and potash in specialized glass batch formulations requiring higher potassium levels. Carefully beneficiated using the froth flotation process, G-20 Feldspar offers low iron oxide and high alkali oxide content per unit of alumina.

See G200 feldspar (the ore body in Monticello will run out during 2013 and this material will no longer be available).
