I work on an area where there is a sericite alteration and i searched for the sericet and did not find a word. I want to know what is called sericet in the spectral library of ENVI 5.3?

Sericite is a fine grained mica, similar to muscovite, illite, or paragonite. Sericite is a common alteration mineral of orthoclase or plagioclase feldspars in areas that have been subjected to hydrothermal alteration typically associated with copper, tin, or other hydrothermal ore deposits.

    People on this site know about GIS, but not so much about geology. Please define technical terms like "sericite" or we will have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. – csk Jan 24 '19 at 18:39

in envi spectral library you must type (exactly) name of your mineral of interest. for example if you type kaolonite it shows all kaolonites spectral response that area available in different libraries.
