Used to have a furnace stove clad with white tiles in the middle of a room. The tiles were held together by a brown clay that contained calcium. I imagine the color of the white tiles were the attracting force and the smell of the clay sealed the deal. Mom had a calcium deficiency and often in the summer she sat next to the cool stove and licked the clay.
