Kaolinite is a clay mineral that is soft and usually white in color, although it can also be found in red, orange, and yellow tints. Kaolin, also called china clay, are rocks rich in kaolinite.

It is one of the most commonly occurring minerals in the world and occurs in abundance in soils in hot and moist climates.
