The Emerging Science of Ormus

The science surrounding the discovery and use of monatomics (single atom trace minerals), also known as ormus elements, M-state elements or angstrom elements, is rapidly gaining ground in high-tech industries, farm & garden applications, and in many areas of human health. Current uses range from industrial applications in fuel cell technology and computers, to improving plant health and food production, to human use as a resource to build health, balance emotions, improve meditation, inspire a purpose-oriented lifestyle, and improve one’s personal manifestation abilities (through increased concentration of focus).


One of the most notable characteristics of an ormus-bearing source, especially when taken directly from the earth, is that, when consumed, you feel less stress, more uplifted, more optimistic, more inspired – in other words, you feel happier!

What is Ormus?

Ormus is the original version of an element (like gold) in its unclustered form. This means atoms are no closer than 4 Angstroms to each other, thus the designation, monatomic (one atom). There is still debate over the actual molecular configuration of a monatomic element, but the purpose of this description is to simplify the known information on ormus science to the most essential aspects and discuss the benefits of naturally-occurring ormus-bearing clays.

Atoms of a single element (like gold) when bound together in groups of between 3 and 3x107 atoms are considered a cluster. Such clusters form the gold nuggets and silver ores, etc. that are quite visible to the eye.

Single atom elements are invisible to the eye, and difficult to detect even with machines, but have remarkable effects on plants and humans alike. Their characteristic effects though, once recognized, are unmistakable.

These M-state (ormus) elements permeate our environment, our atmosphere and our food, though generally in such small amounts that their influence goes unnoticed.

Only in the last 50 years or so have ormus elements become more widely known and studied. Methods of concentrating these single atom elements of gold, silver, iridium, copper, etc. from a variety of natural resources are numerous; some well published, others kept proprietary.

The science of developing monatomic concentrations from a variety of natural sources is a widely growing science, practiced by both novices and professionals alike the world over.

Where is Ormus Found?

Ormus is readily found in ocean water, ancient salt deposits (like Himalayan Salt or the Dead Sea Salt), in volcanic materials, in mountain streams, and even in the morning dew, yet these sources generally require extensive processing measures utilizing lye and acids, or other more esoteric methods, to concentrate them enough to feel their unmistakable effects.

Finding a source of ormus in a naturally-occurring form (like a clay) which is concentrated enough to feel its effects without additional processing is rare, and quite valuable (especially given the common dangers and difficulties associated to the chemical-based methods of concentration and extraction of ormus elements from raw materials).

A Destiny Find

Call it the result of direct intention or destiny, we have been fortunate to come across several ormus-bearing naturally-occurring sources with sufficient concentration already built into them by Nature such that they may be readily felt by the human body and easily observed regarding their effects on plants.


The most concentrated naturally-occurring form of an ormus-bearing earthen resource known today is likely to be Ormalite, a clay discovered in the outlying regions of Crater Lake, Oregon. An average day’s serving is one or two doses of 1/30th of a teaspoon of this clay. Read more about the discovery and use of Ormalite.


A milder ormus-bearing clay possessing a noticeable ormus concentration in its raw form, Vitallite (for vitality) gets its name from that subtle, sustained energy derived from taking a small amount of this clay.  The energy may last for several hours. Unlike the over-stimulating effects of coffee or black tea, Vitallite provides a smooth balanced form of energy without the jitters or 2 hour letdown. Looking back over the day you may notice that you were just not as tired as you might have been, even after rather hard physical labor, athletic performance, or intense school or computer work. Also taken in small amounts, a typical serving may be a 1/8 teaspoon amount twice a day. More may provide greater energy, but is not always necessary unless you are under heavy strain from sleepless nights or exhaustion from intense stress. Read more about the discovery and use of Vitallite.

Sacred Clay

The ormus effects from consuming SacredClay are typically not noticeable, except in a very mild way after taking a tablespoon or more. I have however, successfully extracted a good, balanced array of ormus elements from the Sacred Clay using traditional “wet method” extraction techniques.

I no longer use this method (it is cumbersome and time-consuming), since the more recent discoveries of the two naturally-occurring sources, Ormalite and Vitallite, are much simpler and more enjoyable to work with. I do however, add the Sacred Clay as a component of Earthen Ormus, which is a single formula that combines all three of these ormus-bearing clays in one formula.

Earthen Ormus – Three Ormus-Bearing Sources in One Formula

Earthen Ormus contains Ormalite, Vitallite, and Sacred Clay as the three ormus-bearing naturally-occurring sources. Earthen Ormus delivers a well-rounded effect that is both soothing and energizing. It is designed for daytime use only, as some may be kept awake at night by the Vitallite if taken within 3 hours or less from bedtime.

A 1/4 teaspoon serving of Earthen Ormus contains a standard serving of Ormalite and Vitallite with a small amount of Sacred Clay (for the increased amorphous silica which improves bioavailability of nutrients). Humic/Fulvic Substance has been added for increased potency and mineral composition, and Ancient Plant Minerals has been added in a small amount to complement the ormus mineral combination with its mild calming effects (from its magnesium).

The Sacred Clayand Ancient Plant Minerals in this formula are not sufficient in quantity to supply the body's daily mineral requirements; they are in the formula just to round out its mineral profile and synergistic effects. For complete mineral support for the body, along with an effective detoxification program, consider the Clay Water Mineral Drink Recipes.

We no longer recommend that Earthen Ormus be taken before bed due to the presence of Vitallite which may keep some of the more sensitive individuals awake at night. This is OK if you are driving late at night, but not as good if you want to sleep.

If You Are on Pharmaceutical Drugs

Can Ormalite, Vitallite & Sacred Clay be taken with meds?

Ormalite & Vitallite is generally taken in such small amounts it does not have much ability to remove meds from the system. In general, Sacred Clay will clean the system of small amounts of residual meds left in the system after they have done their work, even when taken apart from the meds. While in most cases this will only help reduce toxic levels and provide mineral nourishment for the hormonal system of the body, given the variety of toxic, addictive meds there is no way we can predict the effects of residual amounts of meds that have built up over time, yet now leaving the system.

Generally speaking, clays and clay baths can be safely taken within one or more hours before or after taking a med. However, if withdrawal symptoms appear, best to extend the time apart or stop taking the clay internally, then do your research to understand how how Nature would solve such a condition without clay until such time that the meds are no longer needed. As always, work with knowledgable health professionals of both sides of the issue, yet supportive of your desire to shift from an allopathic approach to a natural approach.

The Adaptogenic Properties of Ormus-Bearing Clays

Adaptogenic means to adapt your physiology to the unique stresses you are under. So if hormones or energies in the body are too much, they are brought down, if they are too low, they are brought up. This adaptogenic effect brings a proper level of balance to your system.

Ormus–bearing clays, due to their broad spectrum trace mineral and monatomic mineral compositions, bring about a spectrum of influences in the body which tend to move the body in the direction of greater balance, thus the designation 'adaptogenic'.

The Advantage of an Unaltered Earthen Source

Each mineral, and the ratios of one mineral to several others (put together according to Nature’s own wisdom), provide nourishing influences to a multitude of body systems at once. Your body knows exactly what to do with a naturally-occurring mineral clay. It will break it apart and reassemble the minerals into the very mineral compounds your body needs most. It is in this manner, given sufficient nourishment from Nature's original herbal and clay provisions, the body will make its own medicines and thereby heal itself.

This is why an unaltered earthen source of ormus elements will provide a greater balancing influence on the body than a concentration of a single ormus element (like ormus gold), or even an ormus extract from salt or seawater derived by chemical extraction techniques.

When Nature originally put the soils and herbs together, great wisdom went into the compositions and concentrations – and their suitability for the human body. These are compositions you can trust – earthen resources straight from the bounty of Nature, all designed with your best interest at heart.

Many blessings of health & success,
Enjoy these remarkable gifts from Nature!
