Sacred Clay from Crater Lake Oregon
We have a long term customer to thank for our introduction to Lake Oregon Sacred Clay. For years we had stocked both California Earth Minerals’ Terramin and ‘Iamperfectlyhealthy’s Red Desert Clay, but back in 2020 our Suppliers informed that the licence for mining both Red Desert Clay and Terramin had run out and was not being renewed and that the products would no longer be available. Thankfully we were pointed towards the Clay from Lake Oregon which customers say has the same properties and is a great substitute.
The Clay shows a very complex clay mineralogy, each aspect of which contributes to the clay’s remarkable properties and such a wide band of usage.
Sacred Clay is dominated by rectorite (R1 & R3 mixed layer illite/smectite), montmorillonite, illite, with lesser amounts of pyrophyllite, chlorite, kaolinite, and jarosite (hydrated iron sulfate). Nature is not uniform, so some of the minor clay portions will vary or be absent based on the unique location and depth.Due to its unique composition of clay minerals, Sacred Clay excels as a mineral nutrient source and as a potent detoxifier of chemicals, and heavy metals.
This unusual clay is a natural product of hydrothermal alteration (the interaction of underground boiling lava and aquifer related steam and pressure) coupled with sulphur related weathering.
Where is the Clay sourced from?
Created by Nature in the vicinity of the long recognized sacred site of Crater Lake, Oregon, the clay contains a broad spectrum of vital macro & trace minerals.
Ingredients: A naturally occurring smectite/rectorite clay from a singular deposit near the region of Crater Lake, Oregon.
