Summary

Kaolinite from a hydrothermally altered kaolin deposit has been studied. After elimination of impurities by washing and sedimentation, the mineral was examined by means of X-ray, TEM, and electron diffraction techniques in order to establish crystallinity morphology features. This information was compared with previously published data.
