Laponite is synthetic smectite clay. It resembles the natural clay mineral hectorite. They have same structure and composition. Laponite is layered hydrous magnesium silicate, which is hydrothermally synthesized from simple silicates, and lithium and magnesium salts in the presence of mineralizing agents.
