Vermiculite is another mined material. In it's natural state it resembles mica rock, but when quickly heated it expands due to the generation of interlaminar steam. Vermiculite is most frequently used in conjunction with perlite as the two complement each other well.
Vermiculite retains moisture (about 200% - 300% by weight), and perlite doesn't so you can balance your growing medium so that it retains water and nutrients well but still supplies the roots with plenty of oxygen. A 50/50 mix of vermiculite and perlite is a very popular medium for drip type hydroponic systems as well as ebb and flow systems. Vermiculite is inexpensive. Can be used to start seeds, propagate cuttings and store bulbs. Blend with peat moss and perlite for a custom soil-less mix.
