Studies on the elastic behavior of muscovite revealed that some specimens were found to be elastically isotropic in the basal plane while some others exhibited pronounced anisotropy. X-ray topographic examination of these crystals revealed a Corrugated structure of the basal plane of muscovite in ‘anisotropic’ samples. If measurements are carried out on corrugation-free samples, no noticeable anistropy of the elastic behavior in the basal plane is observed.
