While this is still true, for a number of different reasons we have 
recently reformulated Equilibrium. The calcium and magnesium ratios 
have been reversed so that there is now more calcium delivered than 
magnesium (2:1 on an equivalent basis, 3:1 on a weight basis). The 
new GA is:

K (potassium): 19.5%; Ca (calcium): 8.06%; Mg (magnesium): 2.41%; Fe 
(iron): 0.11%; Mn (manganese): 0.06%

The new material _should_ no longer harden and turn reddish over time 
as well. The previous formulation is still perfectly fine even if 
hardened... it just takes some effort to get out of the container ;-).

For the time being, new material will still be getting labels with 
the previous GA. At the risk of killing sales of the older material I 
will just go ahead and answer the inevtiable question I will get ;-) 
... you should be able to tell the difference between old and new 
just by looking at it, the new material is lighter in color. But 
please buy the old stuff... if the old stuff doesn't move, then the 
dealers won't bring in any more. Maybe if I can get y'all to to buy 
and get your friends to buy Equilibrium we can print up the new 
labels ;-) ;-) Right now we just have too many of the old label stock 
to justify tossing it in the trash right now.
