What is clay?

Clays are classified as peloids, and from Greek "pelos" means "mud". They occur naturally in nature. They were created as a result of various biological and geological processes. Peloids are groups of raw materials, such as: bioliths, or mules, peats, and these are calcareous sedimentary rocks of organic origin. These include bioliths, i.e. sedimentary clays, which include sedimentary rocks of inorganic origin.
