Cryolite $$\ce{(Na3AlF6)}$$ and fluorspar $$\ce{(CaF2)}$$ are added to alumina to lower the temperature of the mixture from $${2000^ °C}$$$$\pu{2000 °C}$$ to about $${900 ^°C}$$$$\pu{900 °C}$$ and also to increase the conductance.

But my question is about the specific effect these compounds are producing. I mean, out of the two mentioned effects, which compound is doing what?

# Use of cryolite and fluorspar in electrolytic reduction of pure alumina by Hall-HeroultHéroult process
