Description: 

Faujasite is a very porous rock, of a type called a "zeolite." It is used like a seive for processing a chemical found in oil called benzene. The benzene is the small ring; the large ring is faujasite. The "aura" around each ring is the density of electrons around it, sort of like a gas. Notice that the aura around the benzene does not touch the aura around the faujasite. This proves that the faujasite does not hurt the benzene during processing.
