The verdine facies of coastal marine tropical sediments shows a common variety characterized by a 1:1 newly-discovered dioctahedral-trioctahedral mineral. Although sometimes nearly pure, this mineral is generally admixed with a chlorite, a pyrophyllite, and a 7/14 Å mixed-layer. The rare variety is mostly composed of a green component intermediate between a smectite and a swelling chlorite. There is an abridged English version. -English summary

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
