CLAY MINERALS

1:1 Clay Minerals The 1:1 layer minerals contain one tetrahedral and one octahedral sheet in their basic structural unit (Fig. 2.) This two-sheet mineral type is represented by the kaolin group, with the general formula Al2Si205(0H)4. Kaolinite, the most common mineral in this group, is dioctahedral, exhibiting Al3+ octahedral and Si4

Clay mineral. Clay minerals are hydrous aluminium phyllosilicates, sometimes with variable amounts of iron, magnesium, alkali metals, alkaline earths, and other cations found on or near some planetary surfaces . Clay minerals form in the presence of water and have been important to life, and many theories of abiogenesis involve them.

Clay MineralEncyclopedia

Clay minerals can be classified by the stacking of these sheets. The one to one clay minerals have alternating silica and alumina sheets; these are the least reactive of the clay minerals, and kaolinite is the most common example. The two to one minerals have layers made up of an alumina sheet sandwiched between two silica sheets.

Ball clay is an extremely rare mineral found in very few places around the world. Its name dates back to the early methods of mining when specialized hand tools were used to extract the clay in rough cube shapes of about 30 cm.
