Summary:A linear relationship exists between the logarithms of the mean particle volume and area for kaolinites and micaceous clays (sericites, illites, interstratified illite-smectites). Sub-trends exist within this general relationship and these are discussed. Diagenetic illites from sandstones are usually larger in area than comparable illites from K-bentonites, this difference possibly being related to the greater availability of free pore space within the sandstone diagenetic environments.
