Zeolites have many important uses as catalysts, desiccants, water softeners & air purifiers. This model shows a version of the faujasite cage structure which is used as a catalyst in oil cracking; only $79.95.

Note: The base is not included. Also, there are no written instructions. You will need to build it using this image or the video of the 3D version to guide you. This is not recommended for beginners.


This structure can be difficult to build and is not recommended for beginners. All of static images we found on line do not give an accurate perspective of the structure. We will be adding more images that should address this.

Visually, this molecular structure of Zeolite Y is beautiful! It received a lot of attention from everyone who passed by it! For the assembly, there is no instruction that comes with the kit and the picture online is the only guide. However, the structure can be made by making 10 sodalite cages and connecting them with bonds via the hexagonal faces (it is helpful to look at the picture while connecting them). Wearing gloves can help provide a better grip while connecting the bonds to the atoms. Overall a good product!

Thanks for the feedback. Trying to describe the assembly was next to impossible so we'll get a picture done of the sodalite cage & add that shortly. Here's a bit more on this model also used for teaching: Zeolite Catalyst Molecular Models Teach Oil Cracking
