Optical microscope aspect: Under the optical microscope the prepared Ghassoul, Rhassoul, Rhassoul Clay or Moroccan Clay looks like a grey shapeless colloidal base on which we can see fine micelles. No trace of vegetable waste has been observed. Electron microscope aspect: The electron microscope shows that the Ghassoul, Rhassoul, Rhassoul Clay or Moroccan Clay crystalline structure is similar to the other minerals belonging to the stenvensite and the montmorillonites group. Density: The rough Ghassoul, Rhassoul, Rhassoul Clay or Moroccan Clay density is around 1.7 in the pycnometer Water content: The water content is found at 180 degrees Celsius by attaining a constant weight. The loss of weight by desiccation is nearly 13% of the total weight. Ashes content: The total ashes resulting from a complete combustion at 600 degrees Celsius, in a ceramic crucible containing the sample already dry by desiccation at 180 degrees Celsius is about 18% of the total weight.
