Bauxite is aluminium ore. (An ore is the raw material from which a mineral or metal can be extracted for profit. Ever play minecraft? It's like Iron Ore, but with Aluminium. Just like how you have to smelt the Iron Ore to get Iron, you have to extract the Aluminium from its ore, which is Bauxite.) We get aluminium from Bauxite. Aluminium is the third-most abundant element on Earth, and is used to make cans, kitchen utensils, pots, pans, aeroplanes, and more.  Bauxite is mined in mostly the tropics around the equator belt. It can be found in Africa, Oceania, and South America.
