I have a question. What do people find to be the crunchiest, most non-sticky type of clay (without being too hard - wouldn't like any with pebbles in it)?

I like my clay non-sticky, with a nice crunch to it.

Thanks

Forgot to add, it has to be earthy too and from a good, clean source and come in good sized chunks. Perfect!

I would love to try that nakumatt - feels like I keep nagging Mavu Seller to try to get some, lol (I love her original clay too).

Is nakumatt really earthy? It looks like it would be.

That would be red dirt, non sticky, a little gritty, light and crumbly.

Hey,

I received Ghanaian clay from UK. However, it's not the clay that I'm used to eating. Would you like tht instead? I could send it to you.

I don't eat my clay , but i do sell it.
Wow over 5000 posts, that is a lot to read, so i better get started.
If any one wants to see my clay, copy "bluestoneclay.webs" and paste it in google.
I don't recommenced eating it, because it is made up of %20 a healing stone, called non fibrous actinolite in it.
It is a very unique clay and likely is a real healing clay.

Nowadays they are some selling Ghana chalk in bigger than average size and they taste of poor quality; they are pale and moulded huge with no earthy taste. They are crumbly and dry in texture not cream melt in your mouth...taste more like breeze block, nasty and cheap tasting.

I would love to try nakumatt clay . That sounds so good . I don't know why I keep imagining it just like white dirt but roasted . I also would like to try the Ghana clay . Seems like a lot of you really enjoy that type of clay . I always ate either white dirt or red dirt I used to dig up . But I think I want to finally try something new . I also want to try corn starch but I'm just afraid of the weight gain .

Hey...just noticed there is an episode on "Strange Addictions" tonight at 7:30 featuring a woman who has eaten dirt everyday for the past 30 years!
Should be interesting.

Wouldn't it be nice if all of the sellers had also sale in bulk packages? Like mavu, soul sister, Leslie,Wanda. If they sold in bulk like how Sam does and how Ackee is receiving it, wouldn't that save us more money then buying 1 bag (pound) of clay for $20. Where's you can buy 10 bags (pounds) of clay for $20. Just wondering and thinking. Not asking for anybody to do that but that would be a nice idea. But I'm pretty sure y'all receive the clay in bulk packages.
