Sepiolite is a lightweight, absorbent clay from the Yucatan region used in making the historic pigment Maya Blue. When heated with botanical indigo powder, the sepiolite absorbs sublimated indigo blue, forming a very stable and lightfast turquoise blue pigment. Sepiolite is hydrated magnesium silicate.

  • 3 ounces (85 grams) granulated sepiolite

  • Packaged in a plastic jar with screw top

  • Jar measures 2 3/8" tall by 2 1/4" wide

For the most uniform pigment color, sepiolite granules may be finely pulverized in a mortar and pestle prior to heating. Wear a dust mask when grinding pigments. Sepiolite is very absorbent; always store it in an airtight container. Find more information about Maya Blue in our articles on Making Maya Blue and Indigo as a Pigment.
