What you are actually looking for is fired ('calcined') montmorillonite, aka arcillite, rather than the raw clay. So you might want to expand your search terms to include arcillite as well as...

You could try Stalite Permatill.

Dry turface bulk density is supposed to be about 35 lb/cu ft. So 50 lb would occupy a volume of 50/35 = 1.43 cu ft. Fits nicely in a bag that's roughly 2 ft tall.
