It's a shame effing Nina took her crunchy vids down.Now I have to watch vids of myself crunching on kaolin clay.Lovely crunch,though.Kinda helps me through the days without clay.Just want to see if my period goes back to being normal and painless...Have to hold out for another month.I hope I can make it through......

I'm not completely sure. But I do recall her having 7 comments and the last comment was "These are slate pencils you guys, not chalk." Because all the comments were asking" what kind of chalk is this?" Hours later( because I watched the videos again later that day). The clarification comment of, "These are slate pencils you guys" was deleted, and a few days later video was gone. I looked up slate pencil on different websites and most were either skinny and rectangular or thick like EN. But(shrugs). Don't know positively.

Whatever they are, I want them too!

They do look big for slate pencil though (I have been wanting to try slate pencil ever since I heard about them). I think what Nina was eating are a type of chalk, maybe one of the German chalks that I have seen talked about here before. I know I have seen pictures of chalk shaped like that,...they look and sound so good!

I hadn't seen this post when I posted above.

If Epping Nina said that they are slate pencils then she would know.

Wow, would love to try those.

Which part of Jamaica did you get it from ? I know that in St. Elizabeth the soil is very red there. They say that soil is good for growing things.
