Kaolin or kaolinite is a clay mineral. Rocks that are rich in kaolinite are known as kaolin or china clay. Kaolinite is a soft, earthy, usually white mineral (dioctahedral phyllosilicate clay). While in many parts of the world, it is colored pink-orange-red by iron oxide, giving it a distinct rust hue, lighter concentrations result in white, yellow or light orange colors. Commercial grades of kaolin are supplied and transported as dry powder, semi-dry noodle or as liquid slurry.
