Diatomaceous earth represents a very important industrial mineral with very diverse use and a material with high commercial value. The diverse use and value are incumbent to its nature. The chemical nature of the frustules, the high purity, the morphology, physical characteristics such as very high porosity, chemical inertness and other properties make this industrial mineral very useful as filtration media, abrasive material, additive in the cement industry, starting material for bricks and ceramics, insulation material, etc. This review paper focuses on the most significant uses of the diatomaceous earth.
