Vermiculite is suspected in these samples as well, but because of low-peak amplitudes and masking of its peaks by chlorite and illite, it cannot be confirmed by K saturation and heating. From 29 to 38 meters, smectite maintains a maximum of 98%, and chlorite and illite occur in fairly equal pro-portions with some kaolinite present. The smectite

Introduction to Clay Minerals & Soils

Chlorite: This clay mineral is the weathering product of mafic silicates and is stable in cool, dry, or temperate climates. It occurs along with illite in midwestern soils. It is also found in some metamorphic rocks, such as chlorite schist. Vermiculite: This clay mineral has the ability to adsorb water, but not repeatedly. It is used as a soil ...

Illite is a group of closely related non-expanding clay minerals. Illite is a secondary mineral precipitate, and an example of a phyllosilicate, or layered alumino-silicate.Its structure is a 2:1 sandwich of silica tetrahedron (T) – alumina octahedron (O) – silica tetrahedron (T) layers. The space between this T-O-T sequence of layers is occupied by poorly hydrated potassium …
