Summary:Observations by TEM revealed that kaolinite specimens having the 7A basal reflection are commonly mixtures of particles with different chemical compositions, and various morphology such as film, hexagonal plate and long tube. A triangular plot of SiO2, Al2O3 and total FeO of Kibushi clay shows that the SiO2 content of the film of indefinite primitive form is less than that of the hexagonal plate, whereas total FeO is lower in the latter. However, the chemistry of the Austrian kaolin shows the reverse trend in SiO2 content, possibly due to the difference in the source material. [H.H.]
