Clay - Wikipedia

Clay is a finely-grained natural rock or soil material that combines one or more clay minerals with possible traces of quartz (SiO 2), metal oxides (Al 2 O 3, MgO etc.) and organic matter. Geologic clay deposits are mostly composed of phyllosilicate minerals containing variable amounts of water trapped in the mineral structure.

Clay minerals - Wikipedia

Definition: Most soils are composed primarily of minerals, although they often also contain organic materials, especially near the surface where vegetation and its decayed products can be incorporated into soil. Soils are often described in terms of a soil profile which extends from the surface downwards until rock is encountered. The profile often …

Clay Minerals: Composition and Properties | Soil Mineralogy

Clay minerals in soils belong to phyllosilicates group of minerals, which in turn belong to silicate minerals. Silicate minerals make up about 90% of the rock-forming minerals of the earth's crust. The word Phyllon in the Greek means leaf and thus the silicate minerals having leaf or sheet-like structure with thickness considerably smaller ...

Introduction to Clay Minerals & Soils

Clay minerals are layer silicates that are formed usually as products of chemical weathering of other silicate minerals at the earth's surface. They are found most often in shales, the most common type of sedimentary rock. In cool, dry, or temperate climates, clay minerals are fairly stable and are an important component of soil.
