Kaolin

Kaolins are a particular type of clays formed almost exclusively from Kaolinite. They usually have white or greyish color, that distinguishes them in two categories:

  • china clay is made of kaolinite that is white before and after firing. This property can be gained even through purification that diminishes the content of quarz, feldspar, mica and other non-clayish minerals before they are used in ceramic bodies
  • ball clay can be of any color before firing, but must be white during or after firing
