Alum occurs naturally as a crystalline stone that has been in use since ancient times owing to its healing properties since it is both antiseptic and astringent. It is occasionally available in a crystalline form; however, it is usually in the powder form.

The cation can be swapped by several other elements based on the properties that Alum changes. Of all Alums, aluminium potassium sulfate is the most common, in which a Potassium ion replaces the X cation. Aluminium sulfate has the ability to form various alums with sulfates that have single-charged cations of potassium, ammonium, sodium, caesium, and other such elements and compounds.

Alums of ammonium aluminium sulfate, potassium aluminium sulfate, and sodium aluminium sulfate are the most essential alums.

The leading countries accounting for the most alum production are Guinea, Australia, Indonesia, Brazil, and China.
