Hi Clayholic

There is about 180-200 g per bag depending on the chunk sizes.

I started eating clay nzu during my pregnancy at a time I stopped and started again after deliver, my breat milk stopped flowing when I took it, that got me so worried, but to stop eating it is difficult, I would see some dust and bricks and wish I could eat them. But thank God it's over.

Hi all,
I have white dirt again!!!! Available to all UK clay lovers :-)£6 a bag. Plus postage £2.70 1st class or £2.20 2nd class (no delivery tracking - this would be extra)
Email me on disham68@yahoo.co.uk
200 grams is the equivalent of 1.6 cups. It is equal to a little bit less than half of a pound.

6 Euros =$7.87 US dollars

2.70 Euro =$3.54 US dollars

2.20 Euro =$2.88 US dollars

So you can get 1/2 pound shipped to you in the UK 2nd class for about $10.75 US or 8.20 Euro

Hi Love Clay,

I notice you live in GA. I wish I lived there too, as I'd be able to get white dirt for cheap. However, it costs quite a bit to ship large amounts of white dirt over to the UK (where I live) and sometimes white dirt can be held in customs, which I might add, you must pay an additional fee for it to be released and shipped to you. So all in all, it costs more than a fair bit.

So if any one is interested in ordering white dirt, just email me at disham68@yahoo.co.uk

kind regards and God bless

I think the price seems fair, in the US you can get a whole pound for just a dollar, but since it has to be shipped all the way to the U.K , it will no doubt get pricey.

@chalklover, I just sent you an email asking for 2 bags.

I can't wait to finally get some!! I hope I'm not disappointed :-).
Will let you guys know how it goes.

Not commenting on fair or not fair, just doing a break down in costs :)

Hi Mary, that's the type I'm always trying to find here. I got excited a few weeks back when I spotted what I hoped would be good, but when I was able to go back I couldn't get access to the construction site.
ALT I know the feeling I just hate it when you scope out a site then go back later in dark and cant get to the clay or either the isn't right. When I do get to the site and it the right clay I try to take as much as I can .LOL cause I dont know when I find another good site. Good Luck on the Clay Hunt.

Mary, it's funny how similar some of us are - you know EXACTLY what it's like....but if we tried to explain to somebody who wasn't like us they would think we were crazy lol!

Came across an interesting old report on eating earth and clay from 1895....I like reading about how widespread this practice is/was.

I started eating dirt when I was anemic. I was afraid of what was in the dirt so I switched to play sand. It looks clean. I don't eat it for the taste but for the texture. I know it is not good for my teeth but it hasn't hurt me.
