XRF analyses of individual grains show that the I/S minerals become more illitic (near mica composition) with depth, but they always contain a portion of a smectite component, that is, silica-rich, low layer charge component. Both lath I/S and hexagonal illite minerals appear to grow by adding illite layers of the same composition (0.9 potassium atoms and a slight celadonite, phengite component) onto original crystallites. -from Authors
