Corrensite is a 1:1 regular interstratification of trioctahedral chlorite and trioctahedral smectite, also called "swelling chlorite".
As reported by those authors, interstratification accounts for the high CEC of basalt-derived soils containing smectite in southern Brazil.
The first cause of order or disorder in the structure of phyllosilicates and the resulting polymorphs and polytypes as well as of the interstratification phenomenon lies in the chemical micromilieu acting during the crystallization.
Samples containing 10 [Angstrom] halloysite and with a 7 [Angstrom] kaolinite reflection skewed towards 10 [Angstrom] , which may be indicative of 10 A halloysite--kaolinite interstratification, were heated at 105[degrees]C for 24 h to dehydrate the halloysite before obtaining a second diffraction pattern.

Regular interstratifications of two or more minerals are accepted as separate species if the kinds of layers, their relative proportions, chemical compositions, and regularity of interstratification in three dimensions on a micrometric or nanometric scale have been well documented.

In case of regular interstratification such structures have a privilege of using their own mineral names--in our case hydrobiotite.
Even the soil with 100% kaolinite had a high background at the low angle side of the kaolinite diffraction line, a clear indication of the presence of 2:1 layer interstratification components.
