As with the sandstone, the smectite lining the crack walls and coating grain boundaries is isopachous, suggesting that it is neogenetic. Several grains that have been pseudomorphed by smectite to form the clay matrix are indicated by the white arrows in Fig.
The presence of neogenetic and mechanically infiltrated smectite in both the sandstone and saprolite requires some discussion.
Thus, it would appear that the critical factors for the formation of the neogenetic smectite in the study soil are restricted drainage and a parent rock capable of supplying sufficient amounts of Mg.
