Pelotherapy is the application of thermal muds (peloids) for therapeutic purposes. Artificial peloids were prepared using
pyrophilite shale maturated in three different types of thermal water in terms of their pH values. The samples after 30
and 60 days of maturation were examined by X-ray diffraction. No significant variations in the mineralogical composition
and diffractograms of pyrophillite peloids were detected after maturation. Only the influence of the maturation process
of pyrophillite on the pH value of mineral water with high and low pH value is noticed.
