With the aid of the general principles(1) governing the structures of complex ionic crystals I have formulated a structure for talc, pyrophillite, the micas, and the brittle micas which is substantiated by the x-ray examination of the minerals, explains their remarkable physical properties, and leads to a general chemical formula unifying the widely varying analyses reported for different specimens. This structure is described in the following paragraphs.
