- Bentonite found in the Kutch region of India is formed by solidification of molten state
- It was formed millions of years ago, possibly from the volcanic ashes falling in stagnant salted water in semi-arid conditions (where annual rain fall is approx 18-20 inch)
- Due to the natural characteristics of these particular volcanic ashes, the chemical composition of this Bentonite is somewhat different from the Bentonite available in the rest of the world
- Most of these deposits are of Natural Sodium Bentonite with higher iron content, which gives them their darker colour. Due to the very fine particle size, this Bentonite shows extra-ordinary swelling capacity and bonding powers. These differences makes the Kutch Bentonite most useful in various industries throughout the world
