      1. INTRODUCTION The questions on sources, distribution, physical and chemical properties, the most effective determinative methods, and role of phyllosilicates together with their behaviour in different environments of the sediment-forming processes assume one of the foremost places in the research of sedimentary lithosphere followed by several generations of earth scientists.

Chapter preview. Argillaceous minerals are minerals containing substantial amounts of clay-like components (Greek: ἄργιλλος = clay).

Argillaceous components are fine-grained (less than 2 μm) aluminosilicates, and more particularly clay minerals such as kaolinite, montmorillonite-smectite, illite, and chlorite. Claystone and shales are thus predominantly argillaceous.

Muscovite is the most common mineral of the mica family. It is an important rock-forming mineral present in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. Like other micas it readily cleaves into thin transparent sheets. Muscovite sheets have a pearly to vitreous luster on their surface.

Mica schists are derived mainly from argillaceous protoliths, whilst quartz and feldspar-rich schists have protoliths with a more significant arenaceous component. Graphite schists typically form from carbon-rich argillaceous sediments Calc-silicate schists, containing abundant carbonate minerals, and often including minerals such as tremolite.

They are the most abundant sedimentary rock type, varying according to different estimates from 44 to 56% of the total sedimentary rock column. Claystone is hardened or cemented (indurated) clay, which consists dominantly of fine material of which at least a.

The potassium and aluminum appear to be derived from the decomposition of potassium feldspar (and mica?), and the excess silicon probably forms quartz. We interpret all the major mineralogical and chemical changes as the response of the shale to burial metamorphism and conclude that the shale acted as a closed system for all components except H Cited by: Sediment is solid material that is moved and deposited in a new location.

Sediment can consist of rocks and minerals, as well as the remains of plants and animals. It can be as small as a grain of sand or as large as a boulder. Sediment moves from one place to another through the process of n is the removal and transportation of rock or soil.

The mica group is one of the most complex groups and any answer can by no means cover all aspects as shown in this general response. You can write a book about them (see e.g. Weaver, Potter etc. Ralph Early Grim (Febru – Aug ) was an American geologist and scientist, often referred to as the "Father of Mineralogy" because he made many discoveries during his investigations of clay materials.

He was one of the most outstanding mineralogists of his time and was well-known throughout the world in the field of clay science and technology.

argillaceous Applied to rocks which are silt- to clay-sized sediments (grain size less than mm in diameter). They account for more than 50% of sedimentary rocks and most have a very high clay mineral content.

Many contain a high percentage of organic material and can be regarded as potential source rocks for hydrocarbons. This interpretation is supported by the presence of fine, alternating laminae of light grey argillaceous limestone, or calcareous shale, and dark grey silt to sand-rich calcareous shale, as observed in thin section, and the characterization of the lithology for the vertebrate-bearing strata as an interlaminated argillaceous limestone and calcareous shale.

A great portion of the book is devoted to case studies, supplemented by mineralogical and geochemical data, which demonstrate the utility of these techniques in the interpretation of depositional environments, diagenetic processes and possible economic significance of argillaceous rocks.

In fact the name chlorite, derived from the green color of most specimens, encompasses a group of minerals characterized by a wide range of chemical and structural variation (Bailey, a).In sediments, much chlorite falls by definition into the category of minerals known as “clay minerals.

Sedimentary rocks are types of rock that are formed by the accumulation or deposition of small particles and subsequent cementation of mineral or organic particles on the floor of oceans or other bodies of water at the Earth's surface. Sedimentation is the collective name for processes that cause these particles to settle in place.

The particles that form a sedimentary rock are called sediment. blages found in argillaceous sediments taken from DSDP Site of Leg 56 and Sites and of drilled during the Japan Trench transect.

We will also explain the mineralogical and thermal properties of clay minerals found in these sediments, and discuss the environments and diagenesis of these sediments inferred from sedimentary.

The conversion of clay minerals in the clay sediments into sericite and chlorite is an example of progressive metamorphism. The sediments itself may transform to phyllites, and phyllites may transform into mica schist under further increase in temperature and pressure (Table ).
