Himalayan Pink Salt is one of the purest salts found on earth. When it comes to purity and mineral content, no other salt compares. Himalayan salt is a marketing term for Halite(commonly known as rock salt) from Pakistan. It is mined in the Khewra Salt Mines, the second largest salt mine in the world, located in Punjab, Pakistan. The salt sometimes comes out in a reddish or pink color, with some crystals having an off-white to transparent color. It is commonly used for cooking, bath products and the large crystal rocks, are also used as salt lamps.
