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.

It hast a wonderful satin finish that is not slippery or rough. The tone is excellent throughout the range and it is very easy to play.K
I used to play clarinet, but haven't played in years! I decided to get an ocarina just for fun/as an alternative, and I picked it up right away! I love the sound of this purple clay ocarina, and it's just so enjoyable to play on!! It generates such beautiful notes, and I'm 100% happy with my purchase!! I can't wait to hear how the sound of this ocarina will evolve over time as the clay absorbs the moisture!! (:n
I'm just a beginner myself but I am quite enjoying using this ocarina :)A
Very nice quality ocarina. I love the weight and feel of it... and lovely sound!J
Beautiful sound quality. Beautiful look and feel. I didn’t expect an alto to sound much higher than my sopranos though. Probably my own lack of knowledge but it was a surprise.
