08-05. Kaolinite #7.

A mineral with a sense of humor!

Kaolinite geometry lends itself well to some mathematical fun. Maybe a very subjective interpretation of the crystal shape – but in my mind, it fits quite naturally iin paper making production.

The polyhedra chain at the bottom of the image: a kaolin ream of paper. The two central motives: the same ream of paper cut in 8×10 sheets of paper neatly stacked on top of each other.

Credit should go to VESTA artistic side and its very inspiring mineral modeling visualization.

From a resource by Bish and Von Dreele.
