Images of Clay

A joint initiative of the Clay Minerals Society and The Clay Minerals Group


Return to Clay Minerals Society Home Page

This archive of 'Images of Clay' is an ongoing project of the MinSoc'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.  Suitable images include electron micrographs of clay minerals, or indeed any image associated with the study of clay mineralogy.
