Hello, here is a quick briefing on bentonite:
Minerology of bentonite -
Bentonite is a type of clay called the "mineral of a thousand uses". Bentonite consists mostly of one or more members of the smectite-group (formerly the montmorillonite-group) minerals.
3 variants of bentonite -
Swelling bentonite (aka sodium bentonite) swells in the presence of water and is usually used in its natural state.
Non-swelling bentonite (aka calcium bentonite) is typically treated before using
Lithium rich "hectorite" which is commercially mined only in the US
Properties of bentonite -
Bentonite has a very high surface area, and it is valued for its ability to bond, swell, seal, and its rheology features. Chemical - bentonite has the ability for "cation exchange" which means that bentonite is very good at purifying and absorbing unwanted chemicals and toxins.
