1000 baht for 1.5 lbs is a little over the top.

under 800 baht for 10 lbs on Amazon.  Why is this basic substance so difficult to obtain in Thailand?

Maybe because it's in little demand, wonder what the shipping costs would

be for 10 lbs from Amazon.

You might try asking at one of the chemical supply houses like Union Science.

Yep, Union Science have a surprisingly good stock of such items.

'Clays' are on the shelf to the left as you enter the shop.

Around 100bht/500gm

Sorry, only saw your original post -- missed your last requirement. You would have to check with World Chemical, but it's likely industrial (for pools) rather than edible ....

Contact @tierlock .  I think it was 250g for 300 baht with EMS shipping (food grade also).   Worked out well.

 

A friend of mine ordered from a different source (overseas??), I will try to find out where.

PipingRock has some good prices on these things;  I can confirm from a friend .  The airmail shipping from USA is reasonable, but you may have to buy a lot for the savings.  @Tierlock is worth a shot deal if you just want a small test amount.
