Custer Feldspar (NaKO.Al2O3.6SiO2 ) is a one of the primary feldspars used in ceramics. It is used in both clay (up to 25%) and glaze (up to 100%) formulas and is made up of silica and alumina combined with sodium and potassium oxides. Feldspar custer is mined in Custer, South Dakota. 

Custer feldspar is a widely-used potash, or potassium-bearing, feldspar. This means that the feldspar contains more potassium than sodium (as indicated by the so-called 'soda spars'). This inclusion of potassium means that Custer (along with other potash spars) melts at about 1200C, which is a bit higher than the melting temperature of soda spars. In glazing, this means that Custer feldspar is a popular choice for achieving matte glaze effects (over the glossy results one may get from soda spars). 

Custer feldspar is used in many industries -- in industrial ceramics, you will find custer feldpsars used in floor and wall tile fabrication, in mass-produced dinenrware and pottery, and electrical porcelain; additionally, it is also used in the abrasives industry.
