XRD patterns of the natrolite syenite powder and soda roasted sample are shown in Figure 1, indicating that the main minerals in natrolite syenite were completely transformed into sodium silicate ([Na.sub.2]Si[O.sub.3]) and sodium aluminum silicate ((Na, K)AlSi[O.sub.4]) after roasting with soda; the same results were obtained in our previous study by soda roasting with coal fly ash [26].
