    In the context of this Dead Sea article, a list of the minerals present in Dead Sea water. I've got them all except for this one. Can't even begin to try. Won't someone please help me?

    I tried googling with alternate spellings and word orders and came with nothing. However, I now have the sneaking suspicion that my author left out a comma. That would give me silicic acid and iron oxide, both of which show up a lot... and often together... in encouraging contexts. I think I will query her.

    Thank you, once again, for your help.

    I would think so too but I'm no chemist ;)

    Thank you, everyone. (It is definitely not salicylic acid.)

    16 known Iron Oxides? Sheesh! It appears that not only a comma but also an "s" is missing...
    Silicic Acid and Iron Oxides - lest yours is specific and we need to start over!
