"The object of this study was to find if Missouri halloysite could be used satisfactorily to float enamel frits, preventing them from settling during the spraying or dipping operation, so as to get a uniform coating of proper thickness over the surface of the ware. Halloysite is a clay-like natural aluminum silicate resembling kaolinite, but containing a larger but uncertain amount of water. The material that was used in this investigation was found in Lawrence County, Missouri"--Object of Investigation, page 1.
