"Synonymous with China clay in North America. The purest clay, approximating closely the idealized clay mineral kaolinite. It contains very little iron impurity and is therefore white. It is a primary clay or a secondary clay moved only a short distance. It has therefore little plasticity but it is popular as a body consituent because of its whiteness. It is high in aluminium oxide content and with few alkaline impurities. It is therefore refractory with an assesed melting point over 1770°C (3218°F). It is used in glazes to introduce aluminum oxide and silica and to provide bulk in the slop suspension."
