Abstract

Mixed-layer clays of randomly interstratified kerolite/stevensite occur as an abundant mineral in lake and/or spring deposits of probable Pliocene and Pleistocene age in the Amargosa Desert of S Nevada, USA. Kerolite is a trioctahedral mineral similar to talc, but with a basal spacing of approx 9.65 A (cf. talc at 9.38 A). The data suggest that talc, kerolite and stevensite may form a continuous structural series based on layer charge. (Following abstract) -D.F.B.
