Default Has anyone experimented with this for a clay substrate?

I was wondering if anyone has experimented with this to see if it's possible to make a clay based substrate out of it? Perhaps it could be mixed and pushed through a screen a few times like the Clay Based Recipes call for. I can't find the list of ingredients on this product, so I'm not sure.

I was curious about this myself. I just recently got a 25lb box and am going to be experimenting with it as both a soil additive and a casting medium for my rock molds. I'm not certain but based on the description and after looking at it I'm thinking that it is probably along the lines of the sodium/calcium bentonite material, kitty litter, that some guys use on this forum. I'm not certain of this and unless someone's able to get verification from the guys at ZooMed its going to be speculation. Regardless if its a low pH clay and it is mixed with sand and topsoil it could prove to be a good moss growing medium.

Please, let me know how this turns out. It would be great if it actually works
