From X-ray diffraction data, chemical analysis, differential thermal analysis and infra-red absorption spectrum it is shown that two gouge or breccia samples from Veo, Jotunheimen, Norway, contain a trioctahedral Mg-montmorillonite, saponite. It appears that one sample contains a large amount and the other a small amount of saponite. The possibility of random intergrowth with chlorite is discussed, and also the pro bable form ula of saponite.
