Applications

Metallurgy - Occasionally as an ore for aluminium, but primarily as a flux to dissolve aluminium oxide for electrolysis.
Glass - Cryolite glass is used in eye prosthesis as it has reflective qualities similar to the human eye.
Pyrotechnics - Cryolite is one of the recommended yellow flame colourants, as it is one of the few sodium compounds that is unreactive, water insoluble, and not hygroscopic.
