Occurrences and Biological Effects of Sepiolite and Palygorskite

1995 Journal of the Society of Materials Engineering for Resources of Japan  
The palygorskite and sepiolite occur widely in marine and non-marine sediments and in the oceans.Geological situation of these minerals insedimentary basins are reviewed.They are considered to be generated in logoon,shallow lacustrine playa which are formed during the last part of drying process of Mgrich and pH lakes or seas.Hence,these minerals are believed to be good palaeoclimatic indicators.
