Kaolin (porcelain earth) is an aluminium silicate, with the mineral kaolinite. It develops by decomposition and transformation of silicate rocks. Pure kaolin is white in colour, in case of quartz and feldspar contents, the kaolin is grey-yellowish (raw kaolin, kaolin sand). Kaolines are aluminium-silicate-hydrates with clearly definable crystal lattice of plate-like, hexagonal structure.
Kaolin is a common ingredient in many traditional colors and plasters. Kaolin sold in Majatohter is ideal for making casein and clay paint and is used in our own product range.
