French term or phrase: bravaisitique
Target=UK

In reference to bricks

Principalement composée de terre argileuse, les origines de l’argile induisent des variations colorimétriques ; illitique (marron gris à rouge), kaolinique (très claire), bravaisitique (orange à rose).

Any ideas - I'm having absolutely no luck on the web.
