Abstract: The occurrence of anatase in sedimentary kaolins from Georgia, U.S.A., is described on the basis of chemical, X-ray, and electron microscope studies. The anatase is of a size comparable to kaolinite which forms the chief constituent of the clays, but there is a slight tendency for it to be concentrated in the smallest size classes.
