Where the "Original" TJ Clark Mineral Supplements Come From!
(Not The Rockland Corporation, TJ Clark & Co. or C & M Laboratories)
True 'Plant-Derived' minerals must come from a source with a proven history and with no contamination. These pristine minerals come from a lush rain forest that was buried by floodwater in a pre-historic valley in Utah, 60-120 million years ago.
Because coal comes from plants that have become 'carbonised', the only way to extract the minerals is to use an acid. Because the TJ Clark mine contains plants that never became 'carbonised' it is possible to extract the minerals using just purified water. (Like making a cup of tea!) The result is a pure liquid concentrate with an abundance of minerals, elements, fulvic acid and ingredients that only Mother Nature knows about!
This is the mine that was discoverd by Thomas Jefferson Clark in 1920 and started the whole "Colloidal Minerals" industry. He used them personally for his health and in 1926 offered them to friends and relatives. There was such a positive response to the minerals that he eventually started selling them. When asked what kind of minerals were they, he did not know what to call them, so he said that they were 'Colloidal' minerals (Colloidal means in suspension) It was a mis-nomer because paint is colloidal but the name has stuck.

The TJ Clark mine contains the remains of an ancient rain forest that geologists say was rapidly buried 60-120 million years ago, by rising flood waters. Sand, clay & silt surrounded the plants & shielded them with an impervious barrier that protected them from the elements. The covering fortunately, wasn't heavy enough to turn the vegetation into coal.This was the beginning of the plant-derived "Colloidal Mineral" phenomenon!
