Hydrothermal synthesis of calcium zeolites by alteration of perlite (a rhyolitic glass) is presented. Synthetic versions of the zeolites gismondine, epistilbite and heulandite are synthesized from perlite using calcium-containing solutions, and the effects of the solution phase, pH and temperature on the distribution of the zeolitic products obtained are discussed. Transient formation of a gismondine-type zeolite during transformation of perlite to heulandite suggests a novel synthesis route for the crystallization of heulandite-type zeolites from synthetic zeolite P1.
