Huplaso is a new basalt from New Brunswick that we have recently brought in which is proving to be an excellent rock dust option. All basalts originate from volcanic activity and consequently can be rich sources of macro, micro and trace elements. Huplaso comes from mafic volcanic rock that dates back to the Middle Ordovician times. This deposit emerged from a rapidly cooling magma deposit on the east coast of Canada, and contains 57 different mineral elements.
But one of the great benefits of basalt is that it generally carries a high paramagnetic reading. The advantage of paramagnetism is not readily embraced by current science. However, most soil scientists are aware of the work of Phil Callahan, who has contributed significantly to the understanding of what constitutes a healthy soil. Because of its own high paramagnetic value, Huplaso is a powerful tool to use in your soils. It is also a valuable liming agent in soils.
