Synonym of:Damourite, Gilbertite, Sericite


A name sometimes used to refer to "altered" muscovite (e.g. with part of the interlayer potassium leached out), but the literature is full of inappropriately named examples. Hydromuscovite does not exactly equal "illite" and some hydromuscovites are mixed layer phyllosilicates.
