Hi, it says that you are in Germany but are you actually in India?

Does anyone know whether slate pencils are sold outside of India, like in the US or UK?

You Iron levels have gotten low! Disease known as Pica. Try eating a proper diet with high levels of iron such as dark leafy greans, tofu, or chicken. ALSO TRY EATING ICE. A much healthier alternative to eating clay and it is known for soothing iron cravings.

It's crunchy but creamy at the same time and is super earthy! Ooo just writing about this clay makes my mouth water! Thing is mavu always has a limited supply of this one especially but worth it tho. I have to say sometimes you get a few hard stones that have been over roasted a little but it doesn't bother me. I like the variety. So yeah I'd recommend.
is it sticky..

No it's not. It doesn't get stuck in your gums if that's what you're asking.

I think clay is starting to become too expensive to buy . It's like we're paying $12 for 1 pound of clay. It's ridiculous .

that must be boring considerng tht here in Zim you a get about a kg of clay for juss $1 & getting e clay is not a hassle and therez a variety of clays to chose from..therez red smooth clay,therez red clay with lil stones,therez white clay with stones,therez a mixture of the red smooth clay and the white gritty clay and then ma favourite ....the white smooth creamy delicious white clay,the one tht mavu sells..maybe itz 4 e best tht itz expensive coz u get 2 limit urself

I don't think there's a problem with pricing to be honest. It's a sellers prerogative and it just depends on how much u are willing to pay. I think all sellers on here are reasonable. If it's shipping that's the issue then it's something that can't be helped. Just my two cents.

Again, I would love to try slate pencils - especially this Tiger brand.

Does anybody know whether these are sold in the US or UK - especially the UK, since I will be there soon.

No it is not but I too enjoy looking at all the wonderful pictures of clay. I wish I could sample the amount of variety. This page opens up a variety of avenues in that we can connect with others who enjoy clay. I see that many in the U.S are showing up with clay that we thought we could not have access to. I am amazed at vast amount of people eating clay all over the world.

Hi has anyone heard from Mavu Seller recently or know what is going on with her website? It seems she hasn't had any clay for sale for a while, and her website now says it's being worked on.
