The Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland - Home The 'Images of Clay' Archive is an ongoing project of the Society's Clay Minerals Group and The Clay Minerals Society (USA). The idea behind this project is to build a collection of high quality images that are freely available to all to download for non-profit purposes, such as the teaching of clay mineralogy (see the copyright statement below). Suitable images include electron micrographs of clay minerals, or indeed any image associated with the study of clay mineralogy. Anyone wishing to contribute images to the archive should e-mail them to to Steve Hillier, at Kaolinite Kaolinite, platy

Rock: Mineral information, data and localities. A rock is a naturally-occurring solid aggregate of one or more minerals, mineraloids or, in some cases, organic material. Sediments are the unconsolidated equivalent of these. Other related materials, including some man-made materials, are included within this categorization, along with the major classifications for meteorites. Strictly, any naturally formed aggregate or mass of mineral matter, whether or not coherent, constituting an essential and appreciable part of the Earth's crust. Ordinarily, a consolidated or coherent and relatively hard, naturally formed mass of mineral matter; stone.
