Abstract: The structure of a dioctahedral 2M2 mica was defined by high voltage electron diffraction. The cell parameters are: a = 8·965, b = 5·175, c = 20·31 Å, β = 100° 40′, Z = 4, space group C2/c. Despite the peculiar character of the layer disposition (σ4 σ5 σ4 σ5), the oxygens of the layers are packed according to the cubic law. Consequently, the interlayer cations K have a trigonal prismatic coordination. The angle of tetrahedral twist is 11° 20′. The interatomic distances T-O indicate ordered replacements of Al for Si.
