  1. Feldspar is one of the most common minerals, and is found throughout the world. Most US production seems to be in New England.

    There is a good discussion of the varieties, properties and sources of feldspar at

  2. From Wikipedia, about 7/8 down from the top, is this reference.
    "Feldspar is an ingredient in Bon Ami US brand household cleaner.
    In 2005, Italy was the top producer of feldspar with almost one-fifth world share followed by Turkey, China and Thailand, reports the International Monetary Fund."
