Ores, Mineral and their Composition

    In inorganic Chemistry, it is difficult to find out the ores, of a specific element. To solve the above criticism below I cited the Ores, Minerals of the chemical elements along with their compositions.
    For the sake of easy location, the relevant information is recorded according to periodic Groups as given on this page.

The Alkali Metals(Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs)

    Consistent with their ns¹ outer electronic configuration, the alkali metals occupy Group-IA in the periodic table.
    They provide an important area of the systematic study in inorganic chemistry their physical and chemical properties can be readily understood in terms of their simple outer electronic configuration. Some of the elements, especially sodium and potassium, are extensively involved in our lives processes.

Common ores of Lithium (Li)

    Lithium is is a  soft, silvery-white alkali metal. Under standard conditions, it is the lightest metal and the lightest solid element. Like all alkali metals, lithium is highly reactive and flammable and is stored in mineral oil and total abundance 65 ppm and in crust rocks at 18 ppm.

Common ores of Sodium (Na)

    22,700 ppm in the earth's crust. The fifth most abundant metal, after Al, Fe, Ca and Mg. The sodium atom has only one natural isotope, 23Na.

Problem
    Why does Li does not occur with Na or K?
Answer
    Li forms independent minerals because Li+ is too small to replace the more abundant Na+ or K+ in their minerals. Rather it occurs in the aluminosilicate minerals along with magnesium. These minerals are expected to separate in a very late stage of the crystallization of a Magma.

Common ores of Potassium (K)

    Potassium is an electrolyte and a mineral that helps your muscles work. Potassium comes from the food you eat.
    It occurs in three natural isotopes 39K, 40K, 41K and 40K is radioactive.
    Like all alkali metals, lithium is highly reactive and flammable and is stored in mineral oil and total abundance 25,900 ppm and in crust rocks 18,400 ppm.
