SHORT DESCRIPTION

Bentonite belongs to a class of clay minerals known as smectites. It is mainly composed of montmorillonite, a type of clay mineral, along with other minerals such as quartz, feldspar, and gypsum that are formed from the weathering of volcanic ash. The specific composition can vary depending on the source. The crystal structure of montmorillonite imparts certain unique characteristics to bentonite. It has a high surface area and is capable of absorbing and holding water molecules.
