Clay is a fine-grained silicate mineral made when rocks break down. When wet, clay has a plastic quality, and can be used to make pottery and bricks.

The ancient Egyptians had a limitless supply of the clay that forms the bed of the Nile River. They sun-dried this clay, often first mixing it with a straw binder, to make bricks and tiles.

Genesis 2:7 tells us "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." In 1982 NASA scientist “discovered” that all the ingredients needed to form a human being can be found in clay. It took science many thousand years to catch up with Genesis.

"Pygg" was a type of clay that was used to make jars that held money. The word eventually morphed into “piggy bank."

Clay often contains some water because the water molecules stick to the tiny grains.
