features of Purple Clay
Sand Clay used for pottery is
prized for its special characteristic.
Purple Clay is attractive and
has luminescent quality. It is
non-toxic and highly plastic when
molding. When fired and dried,
it undergoes little contraction,
which prevents cracking in pots,
allowing the pot lid to fit snugly,
which in turn, minimizes loss
of heat and aroma.
The fine texture and porous
nature of Purple Clay, combined
with its low thermal conductivity,
makes it ideal for cooking and
maintaining food texture. It
has a 4% water absorption rate,
and is made of material for
making teapots and crockery
in the world.
When properly refined and fired
to a high (but sub-porcelain)
temperature, it produces a type
of pottery that is slightly

need vitamins on a daily basis.
Since the body can’t synthesize
vitamins, they must be ingested.
Vitamins contribute to good health
by processing digested food acting
as coenzymes to enable the body
to quickly and accurately perform
its biological functions.
Because vitamins and minerals
are interdependent, minerals must
be present for the body to utilize
Vitamins are required for every
biochemical activity of the body.
The body can synthesize vitamins
from living matter but the body
cannot produce minerals where
none are available.
Minerals are required for efficient
cell function and an increased
life span. Trace minerals, such
as those found in Purple Clay,
are more important than vitamins
to body health and adequate functioning.
The electromagnetic spectrum is
divided into three segments by
wavelength measured in microns.
0.076 to 1.5 microns is “near”
infrared, 1.5 to 5.6microns is
and 5.6 to 1000 microns is “far”
This invisible band of light warms
objects with our warming the air
between the source and the object.
The best example of this is the
sun. Recall standing in the sun
on a cold day. You fell warmth
form the sun even though the air
temperature was cold. This warmth
you feel is far infrared penetrating
your body 1.5 to 3.5 inches.

heat is, therefore, a completely
safe energy that raises the temperature
in objects with our having to
heat the air in between. Approximately
80% of the sun’s rays fall
into the infrared range. (This
should not be confused with ultraviolet
rays which are harmful to skin).
It is not visible to the human
eye but can been seen with special
cameras that translate the light
into visible colors.
Our bodies also radiate far infrared
energy through the skin at between
3 and 50 microns. Our palms emit
energy between 8 and 14 microns.
(You can experience this by holding
your palms near each other without
touching.) Radiant heat is also
called infrared energy (IR). The
infrared segment of the electromagnetic
spectrum is divided into 3 segments
by wave length.
Far infrared has already been
introduced to the world as a notable
method for healing. Over the centuries,
infrared has become known for
its ability to alleviate medical
When water is exposed to the far-infrared
rays, its molecules are activated.
When you drink activated water,
it will taste fresh. Although
human being and other living things
are “fresher” if they
are exposed to far-infrared rays,
they do not absorb all infrared
rays. They can absorb the far-infrared
rays having specific wavelengths.
Purple clay emits tar-infrared
rays when heated. These rays radiate
nr other food and water that is
contained in the purple clay crockery.
