Halloysite is an industrial mineral that is part of the kaolinite group. Like kaolin, halloysite is essentially composed of alumina-silicates, however it has a hollow tubular crystal structure, which is markedly different from the booklet or platelet crystal structure of kaolin.

Imerys Ceramics operates a high value deposit in New Zealand, a key part of our offering for white ware production for example bone china, porcelain and aluminous hotelware.
