Diatomite, or diatomaceous earth, is a siliceous, sedimentary rock consisting principally of the fossilized skeletal remains of diatoms, unicellular aquatic plants related to algae.

Estimated production in 1991 was 621,000 metric tons valued at $136 million, from 6 companies with 10 processing facilities in 4 states-- California, Nevada, Washington, and Oregon.
