Abstract: X-ray powder data show an ortho-hexagonal cell containing two structural layers. Close similarity with the data for amesite suggests a similar disposition of the layers within the unit cell. Evidence for a superlattice parameter is obtained indicating a structure similar to that discussed by Aruja and by Onsager.
