    Caustic generally means strong alkaline that is corrosive, things that can attack skin and other materials, causing chemical breakdown and damage.

    As in "Caustic soda" - sodium hydroxide.

    It's a mineral that is caustic. A caustic substance is a substance that can corrode organic material chemically. Like bleach. Bleach is highly corrosive to organic material, like our skin etc.
