Summary:TEM and XRD demonstrate that the XRD characteristics of a wide range of interstratification can be modelled experimentally by using materials containing only three types of particles. The data have been incorporated into a new model that regards interstratified clay minerals as aggregates of fundamental particles whose XRD patterns result from interparticle diffraction. [C.N.]
