What is Monazite? Monazite is a rare phosphate mineral with a chemical composition of (Ce La Nd Th)(PO 4 SiO 4) It usually occurs in small isolated grains as an accessory mineral in igneous and metamorphic rocks such as granite pegmatite schist and gneiss These grains are resistant to weathering and become concentrated in soils and sediments downslope from the host rock Kaolinite (/ ˈ k eɪ ə l ɪ n aɪ t /) is a clay mineral part of the group of industrial minerals with the chemical composition Al 2 Si 2 O 5 4 It is a layered silicate mineral with one tetrahedral sheet of silica (SiO 4) linked through oxygen atoms to one octahedral sheet of alumina (AlO 6) octahedra Rocks that are rich in kaolinite are known as kaolin / ˈ k eɪ ə l ɪ n / or china clay
