Laterite is a soil and rock type rich in iron and other important minerals. It is formed in hot and wet tropical areas, with far north Queensland in Australia being one of the largest and highest purity deposits on the planet. Australian laterites are of a orange colouration, because of high iron oxide content. Laterite has long been used in the aquarium industry as an excellent plant fertilizer due it’s rich mineral composition, with Australian laterite being considered the world standard.
