Analysis of anisotropy behavior of clays based on the laboratory testing and publication is presented. Microstructural physical model of interaction between clay aggregates is proposed. Mathematical description of geomaterial based on the microstructural consideration which  account for induce and inherent anisotropy is  suggested.
