    What is Purple Clay?

    Purple Clay, also known as ( Zisha or Purple Sand ), is a rare natural mineral resource found only in the region of Yixing, China. It is comprised of clay and other minerals such as quartz. Although named "purple clay" it is usually rose-brown in color, although some other colors exist. Because of its unique blend of minerals, purple clay is more durable than other clays once it has been fired. It is also more porous. As a result, ocarinas made of purple clay actually improve with time. As the clay absorbs the moisture created by playing, the clay vibrates differently and becomes more resonant.

    An instrument as beautiful as it sounds

    Finely crafted; creates a full, resonant sound that easily fills a room without being overbearingly loud. Would recommend for those with medium-to-large hands who have previously played other ocarinas, as it requires considerable effort to safely hold while covering the holes.
    Great instrument; with proper care, I expect it to last me a lifetime.
