Some of the clay samples present intergrowths with opaque minerals; these samples are appreciable crystalline forms of K-Feld, quartz, and plagioclase with iron oxides development on their cleavage, as shown in Figure 3(a).
The red earthy gravels are the best expression of a soil matrix that became cemented by intergrowth of Fe oxides, because XRD data of these gravels and the soil clay showed the same minerals, in apparently similar proportions (Figs la and 2a).
A textural intergrowth between calcite and dolomite can be interpreted as the result of exsolution of dolomite from calcite.

For example, correlation analysis is a group of multivariate techniques whose primary purpose is to assemble objects based on the characteristics they possess and indicate patterns [27, 28], whereas factor analysis investigates intergrowth associations among variables and extracts useful information from mass data so the relative importance of these variables can be evaluated [26-29].
[(BiO).sub.2]C[O.sub.3] belongs to the Aurivillius-related oxide family and owns an intergrowth of [Bi.sub.2][O.sub.2.sup.2+] layers and C[O.sub.3.sup.2-] layers, with the plane of the C[O.sub.3.sup.2-] group orthogonal to the plane of the [Bi.sub.2][O.sub.2.sup.2+] layer.
But Kyzylkum's phosphate rock, along with a high degree of carbonation is characterized with thin intergrowth of phosphate minerals with calcite, therefore attempts of flotation enrichment were not successful (Amirova, 1983; Boiko, 1980; Kuzovlev, Maltsev, and Pugach, 1981).
