Abstract: Examination of soil clays from Saudi Arabia and the People's Republic of the South Yemen by X-ray diffraction, DTA and electron microscopy has shown the widespread occurrence of palygorskite. Detailed examination of Wadi samples suggest that both neoformation and inheritance are operative, the former predominating. Sepiolite was found in a Wadi sample and vermiculite in mountain and delta samples from Yemen. The significance is discussed.
