Maifan stone (maifanite) has a long history of medicinal use in Asia—its properties were discovered by Buddhist monks. Maifan stone was first referred to as medicine stone by Li Shizen in the classic 52-volume compendium of Chinese medicine written during the Ming Dynasty. It has been used in food processing, agriculture, cosmetics, water purification and water remineralization for many years. The stone contains a balance of minerals and trace minerals, including 68% silicon dioxide (quartz) and other minerals in their oxide form.
