The structure of palygorskite contains extended silicon-oxygen sheets, justifying the retention of the mineral in the layer silicate family, but the tetrahedral SiO4 groups forming these sheets are oriented in such a manner as to develop

  • PALYGORSKITE (Hydrated Magnesium Aluminum Silicate Hydroxide)

    www.galleries.com/Palygorskite Palygorskite, also known as attapulgite, is an odd mineral. It forms matted felted masses that closely resemble woven cloth. In fact, an informal name for this natural fabric is "Mountain Leather" and appears with attached calcite crystals that look like interwoven glass beads.. Palygorskite is often classified as a clay mineral because it is present in some soils and behaves like many other ...

    pubs.usgs.gov/of/2001/of01-041/htmldocs/clays/seppaly.htm The fibrous nature of sepiolite and palygorskite precludes the production of oriented aggregate mounts to enhance the 001 reflection for X-ray powder diffraction (Wilson, 1987). However, strong reflections from the 011 planes yield intense peaks at 12.2 angstroms in sepiolite and at 10.5 angstroms in palygorskite.

    encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Palygorskite Palygorskite is mainly formed during the weathering of rocks rich in magnesium. It occurs in sedimentary rocks in the form of nests, interstratifications, and, less frequently, large individual aggregates. Palygorskite is used as heat insulation and soundproofing by the construction industry.

Sepiolite ((Si 12)(Mg 8)O 30 (OH) 6 (OH2) 4. 8H 2 O [87] is almost structurally and chemically identical to palygorskite except it has a slightly larger unit cell [23].However, aluminum in sepiolite has been considerably substituted by magnesium in the octahedral layer such that it ...
