Description of the substance

These salts are typical ionic halides, being highly soluble in water. The hydrated magnesium chloride can be extracted from brine or sea water. Magnesium chloride as the natural mineral bischofite is also extracted (solution mining) out of ancient seabeds, for example the Zechstein seabed in northwest Europe. Anhydrous magnesium chloride is the principal precursor to magnesium metal, which is produced on a large scale.

Bischofite (bishofit) is a hydrous magnesium chloride mineral with formula MgCl2·6(H2O). It belongs to halides and is a sea salt concentrate dated from the Permian Period (nearly 200 million years ago). Bischofite is ecologically pure natural magnesium poly-mineral which is unique by its composition, and which by content of important for human health and vital activity macro- and micro-elements much more exceeds the natural analogies like sea and ocean salts.
Bishofite is used in form of compresses to treat joint diseases such as arthritis, rheumatic fever[5] osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, radiculitis, calcaneal spur and traumas, especially in rehabilitation centers of Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, and Lithuania. Bishofit is also applied in gel form.[4]
