Caption: Light micrograph of an industrial-use fine clay. Clay is the essential raw material of conventional ceramics such as bricks. It largely comprises of a hydrated compound of aluminium and silicon. Since clay is formed by the decomposition of igneous rocks, followed by the transportation of these fine particles by running water and the eventual deposition by sedimentation when the flow of water diminishes in speed, the quality of clays shows a wide range. When clay is wet it is plastic and may be easily shaped. The shape is retained on drying and subsequent heating produces a hard, coherent mass. Magnification: x80 at 6x4.5cm size.
