Information about Himalayan Rock Salt / Halite

Halite is rock salt mined from mountainous areas. Typically the most well known pieces are known as “Himalayan Rock Salt”, due to crystal healers and new age beliefs – however, it can be found around the world.

The salt occurs in a reddish or pink colour, with some crystals having an off-white to transparent colour.
It is not a gemstone but a crystalline form of Sodium Chloride which forms in large crystals which can be carved into lamps, tea light holders, and more.

It should not be used for jewellery, etc – it is literally salt, and would degrade over time through exposure to sweat, rain, etc.
