Kaolinite is a clay mineral featuring alternating layers of octahedral silica and tetrahedral alumina.


This Zometool model only approximates the tetrahedral Aluminum (red) bond angles. The baby blue and cream colored struts are not real Zometool struts, and would require 3D printing for a physical model.

This model was prompted by Darrell Schulze, who is interested in printing the required struts. He shared the following image on the vZome Discord server.
